Dunhill: Cumberland (5120) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6603
Offering a gently inflated, smooth rim and a forward cant to its cylindrical bowl, this "20" Cherrywood from Dunhill is sleek and refined, retaining an appreciative gracefulness despite its Group 5 size. The high-set transition and elegantly downturned stem lend the profile a softer disposition than some of its more firm-lined, rigid brethren, while still maintaining the classicism of the marque's standard shape chart. Wearing the warm sandblast of the Cumberland line, this piece also boasts handsome ring grain across the bowl.
When Alfred Dunhill released his patented Shell Briar, he forever changed the pipe smoking world at large. Dunhill has often been credited with being the first to offer sandblasted pipes (arguably the most popular finish today), and the Cumberland finish further displayed Dunhill's innovative spirit. Well received after its release in 1979, the Cumberland series was named for the English marque's warehouse on Cumberland road, and the line's signature, brindled vulcanite stem became so iconic, the warmly striated material is now referred to simply as "cumberland."-Gabriel Bass
