Castello: Collection Occhio di Pernice Bent Billiard (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-1453
Fully understanding that correlation doesn't equal causation didn't stop me from wondering over the decades, why I never had seen one of Castello's most popular shapes, the iconic 215 "Fancy 1/4 bent", executed as an Occhio di Pernice? Was this due to a company decision, or had I merely been walking between the raindrops? Now I can sweep out that particular question upon my next brain de-frag, and do so while maintaining the memory of some pretty special birdseye, thanks to this lovely KK. The density of ostrich quill on one side of the bowl is smartly opposed by a flock of sparrow's eye on the other, and this crosscut could box against, pound-for-pound, some I have seen on 4K Occhio's.
