Dunhill: Cumberland (2421) (2010) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6830
With its forward-urging profile, easy-flowing and elongated transition, and sinuous downward turn of shank and stem, it's easy to love Dunhill's "21" Yachtsman/Zulu shape. It just cuts one of those classically elegant silhouettes you can spot from across the room and is seen here in Group 2 size. It's dressed in the warm, earthy tones of the Cumberland line, highlighting the briar's natural grain orientation and pairing nicely with its finely stranded cumberland mouthpiece.
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
