Castello: Aristocratica Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-386-3745
Although Castello doesn't stamp their pipes with a shape number any longer, this elegant bent Billiard closely resembles their "35" design that's defined by its oval shank and a stem with a slight 1/8 bend. While still proportionally stout, the bowl remains quite balanced and smoothly transitions to a gracefully arcing shank and stem, both combining to give the composition its charming silhouette. The bowl features several subtle contoured indentations across its surface, offering several comfortable holding combinations in hand. It's seen here wearing the fumed look of the Aristocratica finish, offering an additional sense of charming warmth while the plateau crowned rim blends seamlessly with the bowl's darker stain. Said finish also hearkens back to a time when Castello founder Carlo Scotti would fashion an exclusive line of pipes for his close associates, and it suits this classic shape perfectly.- Jeffery Sitts
