Dunhill: Root Briar Bulldog with Silver (DR**) (2023) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7558

Among Dunhill's most prestigious pieces, Dead Root briars showcase stunning grain, are impeccable smokers, and give Dunhill a chance to craft shapes outside their traditional shape chart. This Bulldog possesses a pert, conical bowl that is set at a pronounced forward cant, imbuing this muscular piece with an urging dynamism. Out back, the thick, diamond shank is accented by a trim silver band, separating the warm hues of the stummel from the vulcanite tapered stem, resulting in a dress that is equal parts elegant and traditional. As a two-star Dead Root pipe, this Bulldog is adorned with Dunhill's exquisite Root Briar finish, and it's additionally been engineered to accommodate a 9mm filter.

Dunhill's "DR" designation on certain Root Briars signifies a special class of pipes: Dead Root. Like all Root Briars, these pieces maintain flawless briar, but with especially choice grain on display. Before the Root Briar line's introduction in 1931, "DR" was stamped on Bruyere pipes that showed handsome grain, but Dunhill wanted a more grain-defining finish, leading to the creation of the Root Briar. Starting in 1979, The White Spot extended the grade further — replacing the letter grading system with stars, increasing in prestige from one to seven. A Dead Root pipe represents the best of Dunhill's standard selection, yet remains quite rare compared to the English marque's overall lineup.
