Dunhill: Amber Flame Bulldog (DR) (Two Flame) (2022) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6559
Measuring less than five inches in total length, this Bulldog from Dunhill is a compact rendition of the classic, muscular shape. The pert, rounded bowl features the domed rim and wrapping beadlines characteristic of the form, and it is married to an arrow-straight stretch of shank and stem. The crisp, structural lines of the diamond shank add a strong sense of geometry to the composition, offsetting the rounded qualities of the bowl in profile. It's a sleek bit of English craftsmanship perfect for those looking for a handsome, easily transportable pipe for on-the-go smoking. The gorgeous, chestnut hues of the Amber Root smooth finish dress the stummel and highlight tight streaks of flame grain on either flank of the bowl, so it's no wonder that Dunhill awarded this piece with their prestigious double "Flame" designation.
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. The Amber Flame designates those pipes dressed in this finish that display superlative grain and, much like the Dead Root, have a secondary grading system: Each pipe is graded with flames which increase in quantity as the quality of the grain revealed becomes even more brilliant.--Davin Hylton
