Dunhill: Bruyere (4104) (2013) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6688
A charming rendition of Dunhill's "04" Bulldog, this piece, unlike typical renditions of the shape, lacks the form's distinctive ridgeline or beadlines. Otherwise, this piece is as classic as the come, presenting a sturdy, Group 4-sized bowl that's paired to a diamond shank and a sleek tapered stem. Well-balanced proportionally, this piece boasts a comfortable in-hand presence, and it's handsomely dressed in the fetching Bruyere smooth finish, which highlights some striking grain throughout the stummel.
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
