Dunhill: Amber Root (6102) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4997
While we often see Dunhill's popular "02" bent Billiard shape, we only see perhaps one or two per year with the English marque's Amber Root designation. Finding one in their largest Group 6 dimensions is even more rare; in fact, this is the first one we have had the pleasure of offering in either new or estate pipes in over a decade. A proud bowl stands well over two inches, offering plenty of room for your favorite blend and thick walls to protect the ember. Upright, it perches at the end of an upswept shank with a stout transition that shoulders its way more than halfway up the bowl for a muscular, serious aesthetic. A long stretch of tapered black vulcanite curls downward as it reaches toward the lip button, offering a comfortable posture and a striking profile during lengthy smoking sessions. For collectors who love the Dunhill classic shapes and want an iconic finish in bold proportions, this is a rare find indeed.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.- Joel Balyeat
