Castello: Collection Fiammata Bent Dublin (K) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5028
Far from Castello's usual bent Dublin interpretations, this dramatic, sweeping piece features a swan-like outline that adds a defined sense of gracefulness to the composition. One of the most striking elements of this pipe is undoubtedly the bowl, one which, despite the svelte nature of the shank and stem's consistent taper, presents a robust, muscular form that holds much of this pipe's visual weight. The transition is very tightly knit, angling the shank upward and poising the sleek, tapered stem in such a way that simply begs to be hung from the jaw. A sweeping heel supports the bowl and urges the bowl forward quite a bit, adding a decided dynamism and momentum to the composition and further enhancing its bombastic, Scoop-like looks. Dressed in the vibrant, honey-blonde stain of Castello's Collection finish, this bent Dublin displays stunning flame grain all around, good enough to have earned it the Coveted Fiammata designation, reserved exclusively for pipes that showcase stellar flame and straight grain.-John McElheny
