Dunhill: Ruby Bark (5222) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-5379
A solid, classic Poker, this Group 5-sized "22" from Dunhill exudes elegance and sophistication, for which the English marque is known. In this iteration, the tall bowl presents a dark red, chamfered rim and boasts plenty of chamber depth. It's paired to an abbreviated shank, at the end of which is a shiny silver accent band, adding even more gentility to this pipe and providing a handsome complement to the gorgeous Ruby Bark sandblast. Accordingly, the blasted birdseye grain on this Poker is just phenomenal, as one would expect from Dunhill.
Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish is one that's gone through a fairly extensive evolution since its inception in 1972. It began as the Redbark and has always remained a red-stained sandblast, but the color was brightened a few years after its introduction before Dunhill returned to the original, darker hue in 1976. Eventually, though, the Redbark was discontinued in 1987. After a hiatus of several decades, the same ruby-stained sandblast was reimagined in the form of today's Ruby Bark finish, adding to the rich aesthetic crisp accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.-Angela Robertson
