Dunhill: Shell Briar (4101) (2014) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7468

This "01" Apple is rendered in Dunhill's Group 4 size, its well-measured figure serving as a fine showcase of the archetypal form. The bowl is pert and plump, its supple walls gently curving from heel to rim. Transitioning from the bowl is a balanced shank that joins to a tapered stem of jet-black vulcanite. Dunhill's iconic Shell Briar dresses the stummel in a crisp, inky sandblast that draws out handsome growth rings.

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.
