Castello: 'Castello' Lovat (GG)
Product Number: 002-386-1097
The very image of the Castello Lovat, this flame-grained "GG" briar sports all the telltale signs of the marque's distinctive shaping language; a firm-heeled, straight-faced bowl, a smooth transition into an extra-long shank, and to accentuate the proportions of the latter, an extra-short saddle bit. Despite doing things quite a bit differently than the textbook classics would suggest, Castello's approach to the Lovat still balances out - indeed, I suspect it's the extra-long shank and short bit combination itself that makes the bolder, loftier bowl design work so well, by serving as a counterpoint.
