Dunhill: Ruby Bark (5220) (2022) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6986

Much like Dunhill's "22" Poker, the English marque's "20" design features a sure-sitting, cylindrical bowl up front, but features a bent stem, thus making it a Cherrywood. The Cherrywood boasts the same solid sitting capabilities but with the weight distribution of a bent pipe — not to mention that the downturned stem softens the profile a touch in relation to the stoic, stout-walled, Group 5 bowl up front. Said bowl exhibits a good bit of forward cant thanks to its angled base, while the rim is sloped inward and finished smooth, contrasting the crisp sandblast of the Ruby Bark series that dresses the rest of the stummel.

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.
