Castello: 'Castello' Rhodesian (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3343
Castello's shaping style hews closely to conventional Italian neoclassic standards — the shank and stem often kept comparatively trim as to accentuate the bowl's visual weight. The Italian workshop has an especially recognizable style of S-curve though, too, the shank and stem tapering consistently from bowl to button, the transition noticeably stretched, and the whole combination characteristically serpentine. In this Rhodesian, that style is quite subdued yet still recognized as the shank flicks upward slightly before being corrected by the stem's downward turn. At the bowl, this specific rendition still features the shape's iconic beadline, but the lower bowl is considerably less tapered than would be typical, resulting in a Billiard-esque look around the heel.-Truett Smith
