Castello: Aristocratica Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-386-3932
A rendition of the workshop's "35" bent Billiard shape, though a bit of an understated iteration, this Castello Trademark piece presents a lithely bent design — marked by a steady arch through the shank and stem. The proportions remain fairly well balanced between the rounded bowl and oval shank, and the transition curls gently into the bowl's subtle forward cant. Found here in the gradient hue of the Aristocratica finish, this example features a "fumed," factory-darkened rim, a common aesthetic in Italian pipe making, with the Aristocratica series hearkening to pipes that Castello founder Carlo Scotti would make specifically for close friends.-Truett Smith
