Castello: Old Antiquari Apple (KK) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-386-5564

Italian workshop Castello has a rich history that stretches back to 1947 with its founding by Carlo Scotti, being established as one of the first Italian brands to offer high-quality handmade pipes to the general public. In the 1960s, following the addition of Luigi Radice and Peppino Ascorti to their team of carvers, Castello's pipes began to take on a form that was quite different from the Anglo-French classics that they and others had been producing. The Italian neoclassical style which they had begun to develop led not only to a shaping renaissance within Italy but the production of a number of now-iconic profiles. This Apple is a sleek and lightweight piece, one whose silhouette is instantly reminiscent of the Prince, thanks to the plump, pert bowl's more defined presence as it sits at the end of a positively slender shank and stem combination. Said bowl is supple and rich with curvature throughout, its walls taking on an arcing taper to the rim as the entire build cants gently forward out of the wide transition. From out of the transition, the shank ebbs reservedly into a black acrylic military mount, pairing the stummel to a sleekly tapering stem of matching acrylic. Dressed in the crisp sandblast and dark stain of the Old Antiquari series, this pipe showcases handsome grain and offers a serious palette.
