Ibisbill, anyone? While I won't hold my breath waiting for such a term to stick, there is definitely something to the way Castello incorporates a bit of the Hawkbill's arch and taper of shank and stem into designs with considerably less bend. And this smooth bent Billiard, as you can see, is a neat example of just that look. It makes for a nice flow and balance in profile, not to mention something a bit different and more unique in character than your typical, traditional approach to the Billiard.
