Dunhill: Bruyere (4103) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6102
A unique Cavalier from Dunhill, this design has been around for decades, having been first introduced as a modern, "gadget" pipe, yet it remains quite rare nowadays. Like the standard Cavalier, it features an end cap at the bottom of the shank to remove excess condensation; however, on this piece the shank is made from black-tinged aluminum with a threaded transition onto which the "03" Billiard bowl screws. The Bruyere's ruby stain offers just the right amount of contrast against the shank and stem's black hue, while still remaining reserved and traditional.
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.-Truett Smith
