Dunhill: Amber Root (3107) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5919
Essentially a trim, classic Prince, minus the signature down-turned stem, this lean, lengthy Dunhill Group 3 offers much the same elegance of proportions, just with a much more direct and straightforward profile. (I should note that Dunhill's shape chart, for some reason, still defines the straight-stemmed versions of this shape as a Prince.) Of course, in this straight configuration it does sit quite a bit better. This Group 3 example looks especially stunning in the Amber Root finish.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-John McElheny
