Dunhill: Ruby Bark (3109) (2023) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7062
Dunhill's renditions of classic shapes are always true to form, as their commitment to tradition begins with their founding in 1907. The Canadian is a shape ripe for renditions by the English marque and this particular pipe is a wonderful example. Presented in group 3 size, this "09" Canadian is a rugged, straightforward piece that offers a practical smoking experience with a distinguished rustic aesthetic. The Ruby Bark finish dresses the long, ovoid shank and tall, straight bowl with a handsome, vibrant sandblast and pairs the briar to a silver junction band that adds rich contrast.
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
