Castello: Old America 2020 Old Antiquari Hawkbill (Big Line) (10.18) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-4239
Traditionally, Castello has released a limited-edition series in honor of the PCA (previously IPCPR) trade show in Las Vegas; however, this year's expo was unfortunately cancelled in light of COVID-19 restrictions. That didn't stop Castello from releasing a special series though: Old America 2020. The special series is composed entirely of Castello's iconic "84" Hawkbill design, and fitting with the Italian workshop's conventionally large PCA pipes, these pieces boasts massive proportions. They're also all serialized out of 18 total pipes, with this particular example stamped as number 10. It's dressed in the Old Antiquari sandblast, presenting a dark palette and stunning grain definition, while the smooth, honey-blonde rim offers elegant contrast. Furthermore, as a Big Line piece, this pipe was crafted from a special stock of briar that Castello aged for over 12 years, longer even than the Italian workshop normally cures their briar. It makes for a massive representation of Castello's celebrated style and quality and is a must-have for any serious Castello connoisseur.-Truett Smith
