Castello: Collection Hawkbill (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3337
The Hawkbill has become widely recognized as a definitive staple of the Italian school of pipemaking and of Castello specifically — as their "84" shape. This Collection offering here is one of my favorite renditions of the design I've seen recently, as I'm particularly partial to smaller smokers. Though the proportions are still conventionally bowl heavy, this is a rather compact piece overall, making it well-suited for clenching and carrying around in a pocket (measuring in at under five inches in length). The grain is absolutely breathtaking as well, with vibrant streaks of straight grain along the flanks and birdseye above and below, all highlighted in a vivid contrast stain.-Truett Smith
