Castello: Trademark Bent Dublin (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3378
This piece does well to represent Castello's typical approach to the bent Dublin. As is often the case in Italian pipemaking, the Cantù workshop adds a more whimsical, dramatic style to the classic English pipe chart standard. This piece still displays the form's defining, flaring bowl, but Castello's rendition adds a slight cinch to the waistline, offering more curves, while the shank and stem combination curl sinuously in signature Castello style. Seemingly as an ironic juxtaposition to the obvious Italian shaping cues, though, the finish is quite conservative, the ruby tones calling to mind none other than Dunhill's iconic Bruyere stain.-Truett Smith
