Dunhill: Bruyere (3206) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7029
Dunhill's "06" is quite similar to the iconic proportions of the marque's "03" Billiard, most notably the arrow-straight shank and sleek stem. However, their bowls differ significantly, as compared to the supple disposition of the "03," the "06" possesses thick, insulating, cylindrical walls that house a capacious chamber. Overall, the robust bowl makes the "06" one of Dunhill's most muscular shape across all Group sizes, with this example rendered in archetypal Group 3 dimensions, featuring a sleek saddle stem fashioned from jet-black vulcanite and dressed in Dunhill's Bruyere finish.
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.--Zach Podl
