Castello often plays the proportions between a Lovat's long shank and short saddle stem to extremes, but in this example, they've really held nothing back. That, dear reader, is one very
long shank indeed, and it's tipped with a bit that's barely more than a nub. Of course, they had to balance things out somehow, and rather fortunately they chose to do so by pairing it all up with an extra-tall, extra deep-chambered bowl.
