Dunhill: Bruyere with Horn (3102) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5151
Fashioned well, the bent Billiard has potential to be the most pleasing classic pipe shape. The graceful bend pleases in its ease of clenching; the sweeping transition, planted heel, and upright bowl all please in their in-hand presence; and the lines of the piece in silhouette please in their natural flow and clean curvature. And no one does classic English shapes like Dunhill — the marque practically invented the forms. The ever-pleasing "02" archetype is offered here in Group 3 size, dressed in the rich ruby hues of the Bruyere finish and handsomely accented by a dark-hued horn mount.
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
