Dunhill: Bruyere (5133) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5938
Dunhill's "33" is a distinctive shape that merges aspects of the Brandy and Volcano. This particular Group 5 offering features a tall, muscular bowl that tapers from its broad, flat, ridgeline-wrapped heel to its taut rim. The thick chamber walls provide plenty of substance for the fingers to embrace, while the steep curve of the shank-and-stem arrangement promotes a comfortable smoking posture. The smoky Bruyere smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights striking grain across the briar's surface.
The Bruyere was Alfred Dunhill's original finish upon launching his brand of premium pipes and smoking accessories and was the only Dunhill finish from 1910 until 1917. Even after the addition of other finishes, the Bruyere maintained a high level of popularity, becoming synonymous with what is thought of, even today, as the quintessential pipe. To achieve the iconic, ruby hue and saturation, a skilled craftsman painstakingly layers particular stains in a precise manner, then meticulously polishes the pipe to a high luster. The final result is, simply put, timeless.--Davin Hylton
