Castello: Natural Vergin Opera (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3593
Defined by an oval bowl that makes pocket carry less of a pocket bulge, the Opera shape has a long history and has been rendered by many brands, but it's unusual for Castello; we've seen only two previous Operas from the company. This piece, however, has its own positive elements, including the Vergin finish of uncolored briar, which will take on the tan and brown tones of smoking over the years. In profile, the bowl is visually dominating, though along the axis of the shank it's more diminutive. The rustication offers its own distinct tactile experience so well loved by collectors, and the only decorative addition is a simple, understated white acrylic band at the end of the shank.- Chuck Stanion
