Castello: Sea Rock Briar Billiard (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-3648
This Castello Billiard is easily one of the most diminutive, lightest briars I've seen come out of the Cantu workshop. In terms of the proportions, it looks like a pipe that would have come out of a classic French of English marque. It's a trim rendition that pairs a squat, stout bowl to a lengthy stretch of shank and stem. It noticeably forgoes Castello's typically robust, muscular style of Billiard, where the bowl commands much of the visual weight. However, the bowl's firm heel and the stummel's rugged Sea Rock Briar rustication are unmistakably Castello, highlighting their ability to craft smaller briars and imbue them with signature features. If you're partial to petite pipes, this one is more than worthy of consideration.
