Dunhill: Ruby Bark (4202) (2023) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7438

Dunhill's "02" bent Billiard is a shape almost as iconic as the English marque itself, the classic shaping and pleasing proportions inspiring countless chart standards for companies around the world. The sweeping undercurve of this pipe's profile reaches all the way to the rim, the sinuousness of the lines a testament to the talents of Dunhill's craftsmen. Here in Group 4 size, this pipe is fairly robust, though it maintains a light weight, and its smartly downturned saddle stem makes it an excellent candidate for clenching. The vibrant, crimson-stained sandblast and silver accent of the Ruby Bark series dresses this pipe, making it a sure standout in any collection.

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.
