Castello: Sea Rock Briar Bent Pot (KKK)
Product Number: 002-386-1073
Though Castello's shape chart is more of a matter of suggested baseline forms, rather than a cookie-cutter set of templates, the "55" is one number that leaves no ambiguity about its identity, despite considerable variation amongst individual examples. Overall sized, bowl height, length of stem - these may all change from piece to piece, but that broad style and boldly jutting heel gives the "55" away every time. Unsurprisingly, this is a shape particularly popular amongst Castello aficionados, not just for its distinctive look, but also for its inherent tendency to sit like a charm, and to offer up tobacco chambers of generous breadth.
