Dunhill: Bruyere (3103) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4941
This is a particularly unique iteration of Dunhill's "03" straight Billiard. The general shape and proportions are well in line with the English marque's conventions; however, this one features a "beehive" pattern along the upper bowl, resulting in a rounded, coiled texture. It's an aesthetic seen occasionally on Quaints in Dunhill's early days, and while the pattern itself is one the more unconventional side, the finish is anything but — displaying the ruby tones of the Bruyere line.
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
