Castello: Trademark Zulu (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-1248
I'm partial to the Zulu, but that by no means requires me to like every
Zulu I see. Having said that, I do like this one. Relative to its overall length, there's definitely a lot of bowl here, substantially more than you'd see on a classic English rendition, yet Castello's still managed to keep things well-balanced - in part, I suspect, by taking the classic Zulu's downward curve of stem, and extending it through the shaping of the shank as well. The result is a longer, more gradual arc, which visually "dips" the bowl a bit, helping to offset its considerable extra height.
