English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (252) (4) (R) (1968) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-33191

This thoroughly English Billiard by Dunhill epitomizes the marque's traditional ethos. Featuring a pert, rounded bowl at the fore of a slim round shank, this piece is the gold standard of Billiard design. Out back, a tapered vulcanite stem offers a comfortable smoking posture. Dressed in Dunhill's coveted Root Briar finish, the stummel boasts impeccable flame 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.
