Dunhill: Amber Root (2108) (2023) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-7165
Defined by a quarter bend and Bulldog bowl, Dunhill's "08" can take the form as either a Bulldog or Rhodesian depending on the shank's shaping. Here, this example presents the latter's rounded style, easing naturally into the curving heel. Continuing the softened motif, the bowl features a pair of beadlines just below the taper to the rim, rather than a more firm ridgeline. This particular Group 2 rendition is quite genteel of line, tastefully blending elegant curves and hearty substance.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Truett Smith
