Castello: Old Antiquari Bent Billiard (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3517
Though Castello no longer stamps their pipes with a shape number, this style of bent Billiard represents the "65" design. It showcases a firm-heeled, cylindrical style of bowl, but what I found so distinct is the shank and stem combination. An elegant taper informs the shank's lithe, upward curl from the transition, leading into the saddle stem — the flowing curves immediately identifiable as the work of the esteemed Italian workshop. This particular piece wears a dark-stained iteration of the Old Antiquari sandblast, accented by a natural-finished, smooth rim and boasting jaw-dropping ring grain.-Truett Smith
