Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3113) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4189
In smaller Group sizes, Dunhill's "13" bent Apple takes on an Author-like persona, the shank and transition becoming comparatively more muscular in relation to the bowl's squat, rotund form. It offers more generous bend, though, than the traditional Author, promoting a more comfortable clench. This particular Group 3 offering is quite compact of overall length, making it all the more worthy of hands free smoking — and also easily stowed in a pocket for easy portability. Plus, the Ruby Bark's sandblast and sterling silver accent are the perfect blend of refinement and ruggedness, fitting in well at a dinner party while also hiding any handling marks it might pick up during your travels.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was reimagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.-Truett Smith
