Castello: Trademark Bent Billiard (KKKK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-3616
Castello's "65" bent Billiard may not be as immediately recognizable as the "55" Pot, but it remains one of the Italian workshop's standard shapes. It creates a memorable silhouette with its firm, upright bowl and the sinuous, gestural flow of the shank and stem. The boldly neoclassical bowl commands the majority of the piece's visual weight, contains a generous chamber, and features thick insulating walls to match. The well-defined, deep transition provides a natural thumb rest and allows enough room for the hand to wrap around the bowl with ease. A warm chestnut stain dresses the stummel, highlighting quite a mesmerizing display of birdseye along the flanks.- Jeffery Sitts
