Dunhill: Amber Root with Horn (3108) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4526
Dunhill's "08" bent Bulldog comes in two varieties, with either the diamond shank of a Bulldog or the Rhodesian's rounded one. The former is offered here for a neatly angled, slightly rigid aesthetic. In Group 3 proportions, the form is of convenient size, the squat bowl here marked by a pair of beadlines beneath the rim's taper. It's fitted with a creamy horn mount, the organic medium shaped to perfectly align with the shank's ridgelines while pairing handsomely with the warm hue of the Amber Root finish.
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
