Dunhill: Ruby Bark (6103) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7038
Offered in the White Spot's largest standard Group Size designation, Group 6, this "03" straight Billiard from Dunhill is one of the most iconic shapes on the classic pipe chart. The shape is rendered fittingly here by the revered brand — the English marque having both mastered the shape and been instrumental in proliferating it around the world. The bowl is tall and capaciously chambered, standing proudly atop a firmly rounded heel and displaying a subtle forward cant which pushes it into further prominence.
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.-John McElheny
