Castello: Trademark Bent Billiard (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3701
Castello's shape chart has typically served as a guidebook more than anything, as evidenced by the number of bent Billiard variations the Italian workshop has produced over the years. This particular one is perhaps the most striking and unique iteration I've come across, corresponding to Castello's "215" design on their shape chart, and is considered one of their "fancy" shapes. In essence, that term indicates the presence of flared shanks or ferrules, and often waving, rolling rims and shank faces. This rendition features an undulating rim, its orientation mimicked at the shank face. Said shank noticeably flares twice — once after the transition and again at the shank face, creating a striking silhouette. This shape is one we don't see all that often from Castello and it would certainly enhance any collection it graces.- Jeffery Sitts
