Dunhill: Black Briar (3113) (2018)

Product Number: 002-015-4962

Out of all of Dunhill's classic shapes, the "13" bent Apple perhaps changes the most depending on its Group size. In smaller designations, it exhibits a distinct, Author-like profile, while in larger proportions, its silhouette more resembles a bent Egg. This Group 3 rendition, however, doesn't fall into either category, instead combining the roundness of the Apple with the squat, broad musculature of the Pot. The sinuous bend provides a comfortable smoking posture, and the stem of this piece is fitted to the stummel via a vulcanite military mount, able to be disassembled even while the pipe is still warm.

The Black Briar shares origins with Dunhill's Dress finish, first introduced in 1973 and characterized by a smooth, ebony finish. In 1979, though, the English marque renamed the line "Dress" with the addition of sterling silver, contributing to what would later become known as the dress-pipe style. That said, The White Spot still produces Black Briar pipes, though on a considerably less frequent basis. They share the same finish as Dunhill's Dress pipes but forego the silver accent for a more reserved presentation of elegance and class, lending this pipe a distinctly formal aesthetic that's ready for any black-tie affair.
