Castello: 'Castello' Bent Bulldog (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3555
It is in the nature of Castello pipes to vary a bit (and sometimes more than a bit) in design from individual pipe to individual pipe, even within a single shape designation. This "58" bent Bulldog for example is one of the most compact, lightweight, and uniquely bent shapes I've come across from the Italian workshop. The bowl is low-slung and squat, noticeably forgoing the Bulldog's characteristic beadlines in favor of a subtle ridegline wrapped around its broad waistline, just above the transition. The crisp lines of the diamond shank and gently bent saddle stem help give this piece a firm, yet wavy profile with the shank's line dissolving effortlessly into the bowl. It wears a gorgeous, light honey-blonde stain across its surface, showcasing the briar's splendid grain.- Jeffery Sitts
