Ahh, you now behold the much celebrated Castello '65' shape. One would think that we would have seen many of this shape, but in reality, we've only had about a half dozen over the past few years. I love the combination of the straightforward, no nonsense bowl and tall shank. The plum stained rustication is the perfect complement here, especially paired with the smooth rim. The elegant, lithe jet black acrylic stem both balances and contrasts with the rest of the pipe, lending it a sense of delicacy that it would otherwise lack.
