Italian Estates: Castello 'Castello' Billiard (KK) (2019)

Product Number: 004-006-29239

Those interested in an Italian-styled take on the classic Billiard need look no further than this Castello rendition. Unlike other, more dramatic Italian interpretations of the design, this piece stays true to the traditional form while still presenting the shaping cues that often separate Italian pipes from their English counterparts — namely, a stronger sense of firmness about the bowl and heel, with the angle of the heel matched by that of the transition. Such is the case here, with the rim flat and parallel to the lower shank and the shank and stem combination tapering consistently — a common Castello shaping cue. Plus, the cross-grain pattern on this piece is breathtaking; you'd be hard pressed to find more perfect orientation.
