Castello: Sea Rock Briar Oom Paul (G)
Product Number: 002-386-4315
Castello is arguably one of the best workshops currently crafting the Oom Paul shape, not because of adherence to chart-standard styling cues, but because they embrace a muscular aesthetic, tweaking their design just enough to imbue their Oom Pauls with a sturdy character, of which this pipe is definitely possessed. The sharply bent saddle stem flares to the shank face, meeting a stummel that begins to thicken rapidly, the transition resembling a shoulder, given its extreme full bend that meets the bowl suddenly. The heel is long and nearly straight across the bottom, and the upturn it takes composing the bowl is nearly a right angle, reaching high above the shank face to form the rim. The tall bowl, thick shank, and Castello's own Sea Rock rustication, resembling, in this case, a rugged tree bark, exemplify the muscular character of this piece and its full bend and deep chamber make it a practical and dependable addition to the discerning smoker's every day rotation.-John McElheny
