Castello: Old Sea Rock Billiard (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-3749
The Italian school's love for larger bowl proportions can make for an optical illusion of sorts — tricking the eye into assuming a briar's size is larger than it is in reality. Such is the case in the thoroughly Italian neoclassic Billiard, the bowl hoarding much of the profile's visual weight yet still falling in at just about a Group 4 size. It's all thanks to the slender, tapering shank out back, combined with a trim saddle stem. For those who love the Italian tradition's affable proportions but want something on the more versatile end of the size spectrum, this is a handy, well-balanced Billiard, and one that only adds to its Italian charm with the craggy Old Sea Rock rustication, replete with a fumed rim — a signature convention of Italian pipe making.-Truett Smith
