Castello: Collection Hawkbill (KKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3401
The Hawkbill has become widely recognized as a definitive staple of the Italian school of pipemaking and of Castello specifically in their "84" shape. These slightly downsized renditions always catch my eye too, as I'm particularly partial to smaller smokers. Though the proportions are still conventionally bowl heavy, this Collection piece remains compact overall (under five inches in length), making it well-suited for clenching and carrying around in a pocket. Opting for a more smoky contrast stain, the Italian workshop presents a more reserved color palette here — still beautifully defining the grain, but in a more subtle style than their vibrant, honey-blonde finish.-Truett Smith
