Dunhill: Ruby Bark (6224) (2010)
Product Number: 002-015-4457
Even within the same Group size, Dunhill's "24" Foursquare shape can vary in its proportions, the shank and transition differing in their stoutness across iterations. This particular Group 6 piece exudes an especially muscular disposition — the shank marked by bold firmness to draw focus to its paneled shaping. The bowl is likewise paneled, offering the shape's appealing in hand feel, and it sits upright. There's no wonder why this design has remained a favorite desk pipe by many for decades, and Dunhill's rendition here is an archetypal rendition.
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
