Dunhill: Ruby Bark (2308) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7027
This "08" by Dunhill is a demure bent Rhodesian with a supreme flourish. The dainty bowl and stubby shank embody the Group 2 size, and could be a fitting stummel for a Nosewarmer. However, the elongated stem significantly protracts the pipe and dominates the composition. Offered here in Dunhill's Ruby Bark finish, this "08" exudes grace and elegance.
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
