Italian Estates: Castello Sea Rock Briar Bent Dublin (SC) (37) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41146

Italian workshop Castello has a rich history that stretches back to 1947 with its founding by Carlo Scotti, being established as one of the first Italian brands to offer high-quality handmade pipes to the general public. In the 1960s, following the addition of Luigi Radice and Peppino Ascorti to their team of carvers, Castello's pipes began to take on a form that was quite different from the Anglo-French classics that they and others had been producing. The Italian neoclassical style which they had begun to develop led not only to a shaping renaissance within Italy, but the production of a number of now iconic profiles. This bent Dublin is a sleek and willowy iteration of the classic shape, its wide transition giving way to a sleekly tapering stretch of shank and stem, the latter of which is demurely curved at its bit. The strikingly slender shank and stem balance a far more pronounced bowl at the fore, its walls standing atop a firm heel and flaring out to a high-set waist. Comfortable in the hand, the bowl does well to showcase the dark hues of the Sea Rock Briar rustication, revealing a wealth of texture throughout.
