Italian Estates: Castello Trademark Bent Billiard (G) (2018)
Product Number: 004-006-32397
This bent Billiard from Castello features a tall, affable bowl with a firm heel, deep chamber, and a low-slung, tight-knit transition. The shank flares gradually from the base of the bowl before giving way to at tapered stem of jet-black vulcanite, making a subtle downturn for a relaxed smoking posture. The reaching shank-and-stem arrangement offer a willowy, sinuous note to the pipe's profile that offsets some of the bowl's firm stature and plump proportions. The stummel wears the smoky, dark chestnut finish of the Trademark series, handsomely accentuating the rich constellations of birdseye across the flanks of the bowl and cross grain across the rim and top of the shank. It's a charming, fetching bit of Italian craftsmanship that offers plenty of elegant, refined shaping.--Davin Hylton
