Dunhill: Bruyere (2104) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4530
Dunhill's "04" straight Bulldog is here rendered in petite Group 2 size, measuring just under five inches in length and weighing only 27 grams. Such a Group size is rarer from the prestigious English marque, and the shaping is indicative of the White Spot's timelessly traditional style. The bowl wears the Bulldog's iconic beadlines, and in this piece, the overall shaping of the bowl is more rounded and Acorn-like, instead of crisply tapered above and below the beadlines. Such roundness contrasts, then, against the hard lines of the diamond shank and stem.
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.-Truett Smith
