Castello: Collection Bent Pot (KKKK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5275
Since their founding in 1947 by Carlo Scotti, Castello's commitment to handcrafting high-quality pipes has 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. Instantly recognizable as a Castello, the "55" bent Pot is, perhaps, Castello's most iconic shape, and this particular pipe has some exceptionally dramatic flourishes. Most notably, the "55" features a prominent heel that protrudes from the bowl, and this specific pipe is no exception; the protracted heel forms the nadir of the bowl and begins an upward arc that extends all the way to the bit, creating a Hawkbill-esque curve along the bottom of the pipe. The Pot is dressed in the Collection series' honey, smooth finish which exposes a stunning array of vertical grain on the grandiose bowl and freckles of birdseye on the expansive rim.--Zach Podl
