Castello: Sea Rock Briar Bent Apple (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-4106
One of Castello's signature design cues, apart from their oft use of bowl-centric proportions, is how the Italian workshop's shapes their bent pipes — often adding extra curvature to the shank. This bent Apple exemplifies that aesthetic convention more than any other Castello pipe I've come across: The extends in almost straight fashion out from the bowl and the curls dramatically upward, making for quite a stretched transition that's perfect for draping a thumb over. Furthermore, this piece is distinguished by a diamond shank, contrasting against the rounded curves of the bowl, and the stem is fitted to an acrylic mount. Dressed in the workshop's dense Sea Rock rustication, this piece offers a sublime texture, with the honey-blonde-stained rim adding elegant contrast.-Truett Smith
