English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (6102) (2019)
Product Number: 004-002-20291
Dunhill's largest standard size designation, Group 6, presents a bowl and chamber of house pipe dimensions. Here represented in the English marque's iconic "02" bent Billiard. Such a Group size thrusts the majority of the visual weight forward toward the bowl — the shank and stem tapering consistently from transition to button in an elegant flow that contrasts the bowl's firmness. A substantial briar in hand, this piece epitomizes Dunhill's classic shaping style but in decidedly bold proportions.
The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.-Truett Smith
