English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root (5128) (2015) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33756
This "28" by Dunhill presents the Diplomat shape in a Group 5 size. Despite the Group 5 reputation for oversized pipes, this "28" feels like a smaller, more traditional, pipe in one's hand. The pipe has the oval shank, bent tapered stem, and squat bowl that have come to represent the quintessential Diplomat shape. The shape frames the briar bowl, finished in Dunhill's Amber Root stain: a cool, red hue, highlighting vertical grain which rises to a bowl crowded with warm, amber birdseye.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.--Zach Podl
