Castello: Collection Occhio di Pernice Bent Billiard (K) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5430
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 playful piece from the Italian marque. The bowl is both trim and tall, presenting an Egg-like curvature that facilitates a plump in-hand feel. Out back, a mid-set transition gives way to a plump shank that rises to a wavy shank face, imbuing the shape with whimsy. Additionally, the offset saddle stem offers a high-kicking posture, ideal for comfortable jaw-hanging. Moreover, the stummel is dressed in a vibrant honey-blonde stain of the Collection finish, highlighting the mesmerizing swirls of birdseye on the flanks that have earned this piece Castello's esteemed Occhio di Pernice appellation.--Zach Podl
