Dunhill: Ruby Bark (4145) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7141

Dunhill's "45" and "44" shapes are affectionately known as the "Don" and "Duke" respectively, and are striking departures from the storied English marque's shape chart. This "4145" showcases its unique build quite well, presenting with an extremely trim shank that's fitted with a small domed mount of black vulcanite, meeting a slender, push-style tapered stem of the same material. This nearly absent shank lends the entire aft side an unmistakable gracile character, while the bowl stands, forward canting, atop a flattened heel. Its tall, cylindrical build offers a firm, comfortable feel in hand, its walls dressed in the vibrant crimson hues of the Ruby Bark sandblast, revealing handsome grain.

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.
