Dunhill: Amber Root with Silver (5226) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4080
Called the Oom Paul by most, it is referred to as the Hungarian in Great Britain, but its shape is distinctive despite its moniker's variance. Tall and bent, obviously, with a cylindrical bowl rising high and a tall transition from bowl to shank, it's a classic shape, and no one does classics better than the White Spot. Cascading flame grain surrounds the bowl, grain that is particularly distinctive thanks to a sophisticated contrast stain. A sterling silver wedding-band-style accent divides stem from stummel for just the right amount of ostentation.
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.- Chuck Stanion
