Castello Collection Bent Egg Sitter (KK) (2005) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-9481

I think it's a testament to Castello's standards as a pipe maker that this piece, with all of its immaculate grain, was placed in the second tier of on the grade scale (ranging from K-KKKK). Beautifully unconventional, the grain on the bowl and shank are so close together they begin to overlap into layers, creating a texture that I would describe as bristly animal fur - the kind you might find on a wild fox. On the pipe's underbelly is a charming bit of birdseye, which blends in well with its matted patterning.

Shape-wise, the bowl of this pipe has the rich presence of an unadorned Faberge egg and is paired with an unobtrusive, deeply bent shank - in particular, the type that don't seem to hang around the site for long. It's easy to see why; the shape is simply graceful, despite sporting such a deep-chambered handful of a bowl, and, picking one up, it's hard to imagine a pipe feeling any more natural, the resulting smoking instrument being just sublime.
