English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (5103) (2002) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-29128
This Root Briar straight Billiard from Dunhill is an icon of what classic English pipe making is all about. Dunhill's "03" shape is perhaps their most classic, and this hearty Group 5 rendition upholds that tradition well with a proud, two-inch-tall bowl providing ample room for your favorite blends and a hand-cut, tapered vulcanite stem that promises smoking comfort. Dressed in a light chestnut stain, the exquisite grain that earned the Root Briar designation is impossible to miss, with stunning striations of flame grain and dense concentrations of birdseye. Even more extraordinary, this superb piece is still unsmoked.
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.-Joel Balyeat
