Castello: 'Castello' Bent Billiard (KKKK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5250
Founded in 1947 by Carlo Scotti, Castello's commitment to handcrafting high-quality pipes helped elevate the reputation of Italian pipes to luxury status. Furthermore, Castello's personal shaping approach to pipes helped cultivate the bowl-centric and whimsical Italian neoclassic aesthetic. This bent Billiard by Castello is a wonderful example of a classic Italian pipe. The lithe, well-bent shank-and-stem arrangement gives this pipe a sleek profile and emphasizes the size of the bowl at the fore. Said bowl possesses a pronounced heel, adding to the robust in-hand feel. The thick, insulating walls ever-so-slightly taper to the rim while showcasing stunning swaths of birdseye along both flanks in the vibrant honey-blonde hues of Castello's eponymous finish. A quintessentially Italian pipe, this bent Billiard's features are the definition of neoclassic.--Zach Podl
