Italian Estates: Castello Sea Rock Briar Bent Billiard (KKK) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41471

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 Billiard is a remarkably sleek take on the timeless shape, with a wide transition giving way to a slender, continuously tapering shank and stem combination that takes on an easy curvature toward the button. A pronounced heel supports the bowl as it grows thick walls that taper extremely softly toward a flat rim, the presence of the bowl balanced well by the shank and stem. Showcasing an elegant silhouette, this pipe boasts the craggy rustication of the Sea Rock series, all stained a deep, inky hue that nicely complements the black acrylic of the stem.
