Dunhill: Bruyere Quaint Cutty (3) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4780
The Cutty is an old pipe shape, dating to before briar was even used as a pipe-making material. In those days, many pipes were fashioned from clay, and the Cutty was a popular design, marked by the forward-canted, Egg-like bowl of a Belge but with a protruding heel spur. This Dunhill rendition is offered in the English marque's Quaint series since the Cutty isn't represented on The White Spot's systematized shape chart. It caters well to the old-school style of clay pipes, presenting an elongated stem with demure bend for a timeless, vintage profile.
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
