Castello: Collection Occhio di Pernice Bent Billiard (KK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5440
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 neoclassic 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 and thick, insulating walls that give this piece a hearty, hand-filling feel when clutched. Additionally, this pipe is stamped with Castello's prestigious "Occhio di Pernice" appellation, which is exclusively reserved for pipes that showcase stunning birdseye, seen here in a swirling pattern on the right flank.--Zach Podl
