Dunhill: Amber Root (1421) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-5283
Essentially a combination of the Horn and Dublin shapes, the traditional Zulu features a gentle transition that flares upward into a Dublin bowl, still dynamically forward-canted but more upright and defined of transition than the typical Horn rendition. While Dunhill does occasionally pair said stummel with a straight stem, this example caters to the classic Zulu form, with a slightly downturned, Prince-like stem. The bend coordinates with the bowl's forward cant and makes for quite the elegant design, with this piece found in Group 1 size for an extremely lightweight disposition.
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.-Truett Smith
