Castello: Natural Vergin Bent Billiard (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-3810
Castello's Natural Vergin finish was originally introduced in 1960 and has been a striking success ever since. While the natural hues of the briar are quite handsome on their own, virgin finishes also allow a nice patina to develop by wicking away of tobacco oils. Here we see it dressing a remarkably robust, hearty Billiard that appears to be based on the Cantù workshop's "35" design, defined by the stem's slight 1/8 bend, the shank's oval cross section, and the bowl's subtly canted nature. The craggy rustication offers plenty of rugged texture for your fingers to wander across, and the deep chamber ensures you'll have ample room for your favorite blends.- Jeffery Sitts
