Castello: Old Antiquari Bent Spiral Billiard (KKKK)

Product Number: 002-386-1454

As if the Old Antiquari wasn't a relatively rare critter to start with (only 10% of Castello's annual production), this is the first time I have seen a spiral carving appear on any OA, no matter the underlying shape. I'm not declaring this to be amongst a company first (Momma raised an idiot, not a madman), but I sure haven't seen it before.

On paper, I probably would have mentally rejected the concept: why risk even the possibility of breaking a continuity of great grain in order to add a pattern? Clearly there are reasons that I have never been tapped by Castello to become a "concept man", because this perfect balance of masculinity and sophistication didn't lose a step in the grain department, while walking the highway of style. Quite the contrary, actually... just look at it.
