Castello: Trademark Rhodesian (KKKK)

Product Number: 002-386-1404

When I handed this briar to Bear, he kind of squinted and wondered out loud if Castello was taking shaping inspiration from older Caminettos. Having checked out our archives, his explanation rings about as good as any: whether new or estate, we've never seen this shape from Castello before. While the wasp-waist transition and flared, paneled shank are pretty obvious outliers, the bowl itself is a bit different from the typical Castello Rhodesian as well; proportions are within the norm, but it's been lent a touch bolder a heel, which to my eye works well to balance out the more dramatic shank treatment.
