Dunhill: Bruyere (3213) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4677
Often times, Dunhill will pair its "13" bent Apple with a flaring mount-style arrangement at the shank end, making for a whimsical silhouette. Nothing against that design, but I rather prefer more classic iterations, such as this saddle-stemmed example — it does well to place the focus on the rounded bowl up front, which is where, in my opinion, the focus is most deserving. Sinuous of S-curve and plump of bowl and transition, this classic piece is as timeless as they come, especially in Dunhill's 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.-Truett Smith
