Italian Estates: Castello Trademark Bent Billiard (G)

Product Number: 004-006-9772

Shape-wise, this very deep, full-bodied bent Billiard has much in common with the Oom Paul: its lofty, tubular bowl, grand size, huge chamber and good, thick walls, for instance, look almost identical when compared to "Uncle Paul's" Oom. Where I believe it delineates is in the bend. All pedigree Oom Pauls after all are more sharply bent Billiards - for which this particular Trademark might lack a few degrees (although I've seen Ooms with more slack than this). Whether the pipe should be branded a bent Billiard or Oom Paul really doesn't matter, because it comes so darn close to the wonderful design of the classic shape, and in doing so still hangs more comfortably from the jaw than most bent Billiards out there.
