Dunhill: Amber Root (5406) (2015)
Product Number: 002-015-4079
The second number in Dunhill's four-digit shape stamps refers to the type of stem displaying. Most commonly the "4" stem is paired to the English marque's "07" Prince design — the particular mouthpiece slightly elongated and elegantly bent, per the classic Prince form. Here, however, the slightly downturned stem extends from the "06" Pot stummel. Contrasting the shank and stem's lithe curvature and comparatively slender disposition, the bowl is bold and imposing in Group 5 size, the walls firm and heel accentuated further thanks to the angled transition.
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.-Truett Smith
