Castello: Perla Nera Bent Pot (K)
Product Number: 002-386-4746
From the jutting, chin-like heel, to the gentle bend through the tapering shank-and-stem arrangement, to the stylish smooth finish, this bent Pot is distinctly Castello. Applying the Perla Nera finish, which means "Black Pearl" in English, is a labor-intense and time-consuming process, as the Italian workshop does not utilize lacquer, only stain, believing that briar needs to breath. Though requiring a great deal of effort, the results are simply breathtaking. The dark, inky finish commends the stummel of this "55" quite beautifully for a shadowy, dress-pipe motif, save for a lighter stained band of briar at the shank end. Rendered in compact dimensions, coming in under five inches in total length, this piece is primed for pocket carry and on-the-go smoking.--Davin Hylton
