A fine, classic rendering of the English straight Apple, this Dunhill "01" sports a perfect balance of proportions to its softly rounded bowl, smoothly-transitioned shank, and gently tapering stem. It is, in short, a perfect example of that sort of beauty which leads a design to endure long enough to be deemed "classic" in the first place. Strangely enough, this shape/Group size/finish combination appears to be pretty rare. This one makes number three that we've seen since 2009.
