Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3135) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6386

Dunhill's "21" and "35" shapes are both renditions of the Zulu. Both shapes often pair flaring, forward-canted bowls to subtly bent shanks, but the "35" features a more defined heel and extended transition that offsets the bowl's gestural poise in profile. This particular rendition features a gradual, Dublin-like taper from the broad rim to the firm heel, while a languidly curved shank-and-stem arrangement reaches out back. The tapered mouthpiece of jet-black vulcanite tops off the design, its dark color perfectly complementing the stark Ruby Bark sandblast that dresses the stummel, making for a rich and refined palette. The aforementioned sandblast draws out some handsome, rippling waves of growth rings that provide the stummel with plenty of textural and visual intrigue

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.
