Castello: 'Castello' Bulldog (GG)
Product Number: 002-386-3994
Castello's largest pipes are marked by "G" stamps, and this GG-designated Bulldog bears those stamps well, with over two inches of chamber depth. Overall, the shaping is rather traditional, fitting a beadlined bowl on the end of a diamond shank; however, that beadline is set considerably lower than usual, leading to a tall upward taper to the rim. Meanwhile, the shank-and-stem combination tapers consistently from transition to bit, an oft-seen design cue from the Italian workshop, and it presents a stunning array of grain underneath and deep, chestnut stain.-Truett Smith
