Italian Estates: Castello Natural Vergin Bent Brandy (G)
Product Number: 004-006-28415
What draws people most to virgin-finished briars is how they take on color, developing a patina with time and use, like a meerschaum pipe but with the texture and smoking qualities of briar. This handsome Natural Vergin bent Brandy is sure to darken nicely, transforming the sand-hued, rusticated finish into a rich, warm shade. Shape-wise, this piece is among Castello's largest offerings having earned the workshop's "G" stamp, denoting pieces on par with house pipes in their increased bowl height and chamber depth. Finished in a rugged rustication, this pipe is primed to deliver plenty of tactile enjoyment in hand while the rim is left smooth for a hint of contrast.- Jeffery Sitts
