Dunhill: Ruby Bark (2105) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5723
Dunhill's Group 2 is among the marque's smallest and most rare size designations and suits this lightweight "05" Dublin perfectly. Measuring fewer than five inches in length, it's well suited for travel and strikes a refine profile. The gently flared bowl features a beveled rim that softens the form and should assist in loading the tobacco chamber. Well balanced and proportional, it's dressed in the Ruby Bark sandblast, with its gleaming silver band lending further elegance.
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, crisp aesthetic accents of sterling silver for a colorful presentation that still retains a high level of formality.-Angela Robertson
