Dunhill: Bruyere Quaint Acorn (3) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5301
English marque Dunhill is perhaps the most iconic champion of pipe-chart standard shapes in the world of pipe making, with a storied history of creating and following specific designs, but even they have a variant line, their Quaint series. This Group 3 sized Acorn is one of those Quaint renditions, offering a nearly Billiard-like bowl, but with a bit of pinched rounding at the top and a more gestural, organic heel. It looks quite sleek, paired as it is to a lithe shank-and-stem combination, and wearing a glossy, dark Bruyere finish.
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.- Joel Balyeat
