Dunhill: Bruyere (4220) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4474
Much like Dunhill's "22" Poker, the English marque's "20" design features a sure-sitting, cylindrical bowl up front, but features a bent stem, thus making it a Cherrywood. The Cherrywood boasts the same solid sitting capabilities but with the weight distribution of a bent pipe — not to mention that the downturned saddle stem softens the profile a touch in relation to the stoic, stout-walled, Group 4 bowl up front. Said bowl exhibits a good bit of forward cant thanks to its angled base, while the rim is slightly rounded for a subtle, yet charming accenting touch and is handsomely finished in the rich tones of the iconic Bruyere finish.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.- Jeffery Sitts
