Dunhill: Ruby Bark (4104) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6853
One of the most classic pipes from Dunhill's shape chart, this "04" Bulldog and its Group 4 size epitomize the British tradition of prioritizing simplicity and balanced proportions. The Bulldog's muscular bowl features a slight forward cant and the diamond shank-and-stem arrangement is arrow-straight. Furthermore, the bowl forgoes the shape's traditional dual beadlines, leaving the rugged texture of Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish unblemished.
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 reimagined 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.--Zach Podl
