Dunhill: Amber Root (5104) (2016) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5920
The military mount construction of this "04" Bulldog from Dunhill both allows for easy and durable disassembly, as well as accentuates the stummels firm, architectural style and forward cant. The majority of the shank is composed of the mount itself, the hue of the jet-black vulcanite working quite well with that of the briar, the warm, glossy tones of the Amber Root finish lending the composition a handsome, Old World aesthetic. The bowl, while of robust Group 5 size, shows a minimal taper, its start from the high-set waist marked by a single crisp ridgeline, keeping things looking solid up front, while the sleek tapered stem offers a balancing bit of slenderness.
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.-Truett Smith
