Dunhill: Root Briar (5120) (2020)
Product Number: 002-015-5266
Similar to the "22" Poker, Dunhill's "20" Cherrywood pairs a sure-sitting, cylindrical bowl to a low-set transition, with the primary difference being the addition of a gently bent stem. Such a design cue is reminiscent of the elegantly downturned stem of the Prince shape and serves to offer a greater sense of balance when clenched. It's found here in Group 5 proportions with the bowl displaying a hint of forward cant and is handsomely dressed in the vibrant, flawless palette of the Root Briar finish.
The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.-Truett Smith
