Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3233) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4970
This "33" shape is Dunhill's take on a bent Brandy, with the tapered bowl sides descending to a broad, flat heel. The mass of the heel extends in the back to make the transition to upturned shank more stout, and a lithe, well-bent vulcanite saddle stem balances the visual and physical weight of the pipe. This rendition is dressed in the stimulating Ruby Bark finish and a silver band crowns the shank for a touch of elegance.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was re-imagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.- Joel Balyeat
