Castello: Occhio di Pernice Collection Bent Billiard (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-4756
With a stout, heavy-set bowl and a languid, high-reaching shank-and-stem arrangement, this bent Billiard offers an eye-catching profile that is distinctly Castello. The bowl possesses a bold, muscular heel, a broad rim that favors the fore a touch over the aft, and some seriously neoclassical proportions. The voluptuous bowl conforms elegantly to the hand, with plenty of surface area for the fingers to grip. The willowy S-curve of the shank-and-stem arrangement keeps things graceful and flowing out back, while also promoting a comfortable smoking posture. The stummel wears a handsome, honey-blond smooth finish that showcases an abundance of birdseye on either flank of the bowl, demonstrating why Castello chose to stamp this piece Occhio di Pernice, a designation reserved for pipes with exceptional birdseye.--Davin Hylton
