Dunhill: Ruby Bark (5101) (2008)
Product Number: 002-015-5540
Dunhill's "01" Apple can vary in its degree of plumpness, some being considerably voluptuous, while others are more reserved and slender. This Group 5 rendition of the former variety, presenting a voluptuous form reminiscent of the Brandy with its full base and tall, upward taper. It all combines for a exceptional ergonomic comfort, and the added height creates plenty of chamber depth.
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.-Truett Smith
