Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Castello “Castello” Bent Egg (G) (Unsmoked)  

Product Number: 004-006-9511

(Picture Rod Serling speaking to an unseen audience) "Submitted for your approval, a pipe that simultaneously inhabits two worlds; that of the 65 bent billiard and that of the 93 bent egg. While this surface contradiction may appear to be at odds with those of the pipe world, it's just another day for those who have arrived at... "The Castello Zone". The freer hand that Castello allows its carvers often results in iterations that I personally prefer over the more lock step executions. This fusion of bent billiard and egg is wrapped in a delightful vortex of windswept grain and the Castello blond stain does an amazing job of augmenting the visible grain. Subtle touches of organicism in the shank and mount, and again at the rim, add a delightful layering of complexity to the form without the slightest hint of ostentation. Recommended.
