Dunhill: Ruby Bark (4412) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5725
One of Dunhill's more unique variations, this "4412" is a lithe take on the classic Stack, marked by a gently bent, Prince-like stem. Tall of bowl, there's plenty of chamber on offer, and the elegant bend out back makes for a more comfortable clenching posture and matches well with the svelte, slender lines of the profile. Dressing the stummel here are the vibrant crimson hues of the Ruby Bark sandblast, the junction point adorned with a trim band of silver for striking contrast.
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 re-imagined 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
