Dunhill: Shell Briar (4108F) (2021) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6633
The Rhodesian shape is often marked by muscularity, and this Group 4 size "08" pipe by Dunhill personifies robust proportions. The beefy shank and stem are wide enough to accommodate a 9mm filter, indicated by the "F" stamp, while also forming a strong S-curve. The hand-filling bowl forgoes the shape's characteristic beadlines, but provides tactility due to Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar sandblast.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe-smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.--Zach Podl
