Dunhill: Shell Briar (5104) (2017) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7698

Dunhill's taller straight Bulldog rendition is this "04" design, as opposed to the more squat and broad style of the English marque's "17" version. Often times, the "04" has a more slender and sleek shaping style; however, this Group 5 example exudes stout muscularity. Furthermore, the overall length has been abbreviated compared to previous iterations we've received, likening this piece to some of Dunhill's Stubby designs. With plenty of chamber and plenty of substance, it's a versatile pipe with no shortage of presence or chamber capacity.

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.
