English Estates: Dunhill Ruby Bark (6202) (2008)
Product Number: 004-002-19416
Fashioned well, the bent Billiard has potential to be the most pleasing classic pipe shape. The graceful bend pleases in its ease of clenching; the sweeping transition, planted heel, and upright bowl all please in their in hand presence; and the lines of the piece in silhouette please in their natural flow and clean curvature. And no one does classic English shapes like Dunhill — the marque practically invented the forms. The ever-pleasing "02" archetype is offered here in impressive Group 6 size wearing the Ruby Bark finish.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was re-imagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.-Truett Smith
