Castello: 'Castello' Billiard (KKKK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-4552
Castello boasts a rich history that reaches back to 1947 when Carlo Scotti founded the workshop in Italy. Now run by son-in-law Franco Coppo, Castello has been crafting pipes from high-quality briar into handsomely shaped and finished, well-engineered smoking instruments that command a large, loyal following. This 'Castello' Billiard is a fine example of the workshop's commitment, its stout, thick-walled bowl housing an abundance of chamber, sitting upon a firm, pronounced heel that emphasizes the bowl's presence in the composition. The muscular bowl is paired to a shank and stem that elegantly taper toward the bit, lending a proportional balance. The stummel is dressed in one of the workshop's fetching auburn stains, elevating the simply stunning birdseye that saturates this pipe.-Angela Robertson
