Dunhill: Bruyere (1103) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4595
Dunhill's "03" Billiard has long been heralded as the archetypal rendition of the shape chart standard, with artisan carvers looking to the English marque for its perfect proportions and line work. This particular one is offered in more diminutive Group 1 size, rendered in a compact length and lightweight form. It's dressed here in the ever-classic Bruyere stain that exudes traditional, old-school English charm.
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
