English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (35) (F/T) (3) (R) (1962)

Product Number: 004-002-29862

Dated to 1962, this Billiard from Dunhill showcases the timelessness of their shape chart, presenting a streamlined profile that speaks to the well-balanced proportions and sleek design of English pipe making. The softly rounded bowl sits poised at the front of the piece, with the low-slung shank-and-stem combination bolstering its firm posture with straight lines. Light weight and agile in hand, this piece wears the classic Root Briar finish, deftly accentuating the gorgeous fields of birdseye across the flanks of the bowl, and cross grain across the length of the shank, making for a visual rich stummel that pairs well to the jet-black, tapered vulcanite stem.

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.
