Dunhill: Ruby Bark (6202) (2022) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6926
Dunhill's largest standard size designation, Group 6, presents a bowl and chamber of house pipe dimensions, here represented in the English marque's iconic "02" bent Billiard. Such a Group size thrusts the majority of the visual weight forward toward the bowl — the elegant flow of the shank-and-stem combination contrasting the bowl's firmness. A substantial briar in hand, this piece epitomizes Dunhill's classic shaping style but in decidedly bold proportions.
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.-Truett Smith
