Dunhill: Cumberland (5108) (2023) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7366

Dunhill's "08" shape code defines two different shapes depending on the rendition, both a bent Bulldog and a Rhodesian, with this particular piece being the former. A sturdy, muscular pipe, this iteration of the classic shape is a timeless one, staying true to Dunhill's archetypal Anglo-French shaping style. Presented in robust Group 5 size, this briar showcases a defined, muscular look and plenty of sturdy angularity, especially at the diamond-shaped shank-and-stem combination. Said pairing lifts out of a wide transition and curls into a comfortable arc that makes smoking easy and enjoyable, their dynamic posture lending the composition a charming character. The bowl here stands atop a firm heel and flares into a high-set waist marked with a single ridgeline, this waist additionally marking an easy taper to the flat rim. Dressed in the rugged, earthy sandblast of the Cumberland finish, this pipe showcases handsome grain throughout.

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."
