Dunhill: Shell Briar (6105) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7525

Dunhill's "05" Dublin showcases a palpable momentum across its straightforward form. The arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement linearly flares from the trim bit to the tidy transition, which sweeps upward into the pert bowl, its walls expanding outward as they ascend to the broad rim. The consistent expansion of the form drives the eye forward to the fore, an engaging design cue that makes the "05" so timeless and endearing. This particular "05" is rendered in extraordinary Group 6 size and is dressed in Dunhill's Shell Briar finish.

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.
