Italian Estates: Castello Collection Bulldog (KK) (2004) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-9389

You know a pipe's got some awesome grain when the maker uses it as an accent. Though varied and somewhat wild, the bowl features some of the most graphic and well-defined flame grain I've ever seen on a Castello, which I think is due in part to the exceptional contrast stain, making it somewhat resemble a page torn from a Rembrandt etching: the surface creating a raw, "painted" impression, subtle and expressionistically moody. The shape it covers is what you would call a sound example of a very Castello Bulldog. The bowl is extra-tall and plenty broad, yet is kept refined in style by a smooth and considerable taper from bead-lines to heel. The lofty, proudly poised bowl, when contrasted against the dynamic propulsion of the acutely angled, straight stem, creates a bit of shaping that hold up against said amazing grain.
