Dunhill: Bruyere (3124) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4844
Even within the same Group size, Dunhill's "24" Foursquare shape can vary in its proportions, the shank and transition differing in their stoutness across iterations. This particular Group 4 piece exudes an especially muscular disposition — the shank marked by bold firmness to draw focus to its paneled shaping. The bowl is likewise paneled, offering the shape's appealing in-hand feel, and it sits upright. There's no wonder why this design has remained a favorite desk pipe by many for decades, and Dunhill's interpretation here is an archetypal rendition.
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
