Castello: 'Castello' Bent Egg (Big Line) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5454
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 has helped cultivate the bowl-centric and whimsical Italian neoclassic aesthetic. This bent Egg by Castello is a gargantuan briar, its palm-filling bowl feeling extra robust in hand due to the pipe's weight of nearly a third of a pound. The bulging fore and pronounced heel form a curvaceous arc that extends onto the underside of the well-bent shank, which rises nearly upright out of the expansive transition. Furthermore, the shank end is fitted with a mount fashioned from the same navy-blue acrylic as the stem, offering an understated flourish of color. Additionally, this pipe is dressed in Castello's eponymous finish, highlighting fetching grain in a distinguished, smoky smooth finish.--Zach Podl
