Dunhill: Cumberland (6203) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6606
In stout Group 6 proportions, this classic Billiard from Dunhill presents the English marque's traditional style in palm-filling size sure to please large-pipe enthusiasts. A thoroughly English pipe, the proportions, while large, maintain the balance between bowl height and shank length that characterize the traditional Billiard shape. With a softly rounded heel that curves deftly into a thick round shank and saddle stem, the silhouette is all crisp, clear lines. This pipe emphasizes the quality of its construction and materials more than any particular feature or attention-grabbing finish, keeping an air of dignity and class. Dressed in Dunhill's Cumberland finish, this pipe offers much to interest the hand as well as the eye.
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
