Castello: 'Castello' "Knot" Occhio di Pernice Bent Billiard (59.100)
Product Number: 002-386-4200
Castello's Knot series is a line named for a symbol with a variety of meanings. From implying a deep sense of connectedness to being used as a practical method of attaching and securing objects, the knot is a design that inherently suggests firmness, strength, and endurance. Appropriately, all members of this series wear a sturdy, sterling silver shank band on which lies an intricate carving of the line's namesake. They also feature a slender shank and stem that does well to highlight this bent Billiard's bowl. With neoclassical Italian proportions, this offering displays a prominent bowl within which lies a generous chamber. Dressed in a warm contrast stain to define the briar's beautiful birdseye, this offering notably earned Castello's prestigious Occhio di Pernice designation — an accolade that commends pieces showcasing superlative birdseye. It's a regal yet reserved composition, tastefully accented by the beautiful silver Knot band and serialized out of only 100 total pipes.-Truett Smith
