Castello: 'Castello' Bent Bulldog (GG)
Product Number: 002-386-1383
The less-often seen GG size designation from Castello stands for "Good Gracious!" OK, it stands for "Good God," "Great Googly," or "Great Grain" (depending on the local dialect, societal customs, or grade). OK, OK. It means Grande Grande. This "Grande-squared" imparts a good deal of hand filling satisfaction, without being so heavy that your favored side of holding a pipe winds up with a forearm that's twice the size of the other. While timeless can mean different things to different folks, when it comes to the handmade Italian pipe, this shape is as close as it comes; it has been produced since the inception of Castello. With such a combination of fabulous shape and grain, I'm almost (almost) tempted to put this magnificent pipe in my pocket and sneak it out of the building...
