Dunhill: Ruby Bark (5226) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5380
Called the Oom Paul by most, it is referred to as the Hungarian in Great Britain, but its shape is distinctive despite its moniker's variance. Tall and bent, obviously, with a cylindrical bowl rising high and a tall transition from bowl to shank, it's a classic shape, and no one does classics better than the White Spot. The highly textural Ruby Bark finish offers plenty of stimulation in hand, and a sterling silver wedding-band-style accent divides stem from stummel for just the right amount of ostentation.
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.- Chuck Stanion
