Castello: Sea Rock Briar Billiard (KK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-1761
A smaller piece from Castello, but just as firm as anything you'd expect from the Italian marque. The jutting heel mirrors the strong transition, creating parallel right angles that draw the eye away from the neoclassical bowl, down the slightly tapered shank, and through the drop in the saddle stem. It's a neat trick that moves the eye through the composition from left to right (or "giving it momentum" as we often refer to it), and serves as a perfect example of how Castello can provide pipes with as much attention paid to shaping and aesthetics as pipes double or triple their price.
