Dunhill: Amber Root (4208) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4462
The "08" shape designation on Dunhill's pipe chart denotes both a bent Bulldog and bent Rhodesian, the difference dependent upon the shank's shaping. In this Group 4 example, a Rhodesian is represented by the round shank, compared to the Bulldog's diamond orientation. This rendition bears a good deal of substance, calling to mind the vintage Bullmoose shape, but with a saddle stem and larger overall size.
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
