English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (63032) (1980)
Product Number: 004-002-29768
Considered by many to be the archetypal Billiard, Dunhill's "03" design personifies classic English shaping standards: The proportions between bowl and shank are balanced and natural, with this hearty Group 6 rendition from 1980 offering a remarkably robust disposition and a more muscular profile. Pert and upright, this composition is handsomely dressed in the Root Briar's auburn stain, highlighting a wealth of beautiful grain around the bowl.
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
