English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (5103) (1986) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31739
Full-bodied and streamlined, this "03" Billiard from Dunhill exemplifies classic English shaping. Rendered in robust Group 5 size, the proportions are spot on and balanced. The upright, deep-chambered bowl is thick-walled and pertly poised at the end of a sleek, lithe shank-and-stem arrangement for a handsome, elegant profile. Dressed in the marque's highly acclaimed Root Briar finish, this is a fine piece of quality, high-end craftsmanship from one of the most well-respected companies in the entire pipe-making industry.
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.-Angela Robertson
