Castello: Trademark Bent Dublin (KKKK) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-386-5589

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 bent Dublin is a sinuous and dynamic shape that boasts plenty of neoclassical charm thanks to the impressive presence of its bowl, all this substance belying the relatively compact proportions of this pipe as a whole. Rather light in hand and coming in at less than five and a half inches long, this pipe's wide transition gives way to a slim shank and stem combination, the pair taking on a consistent taper toward the button: all while providing a smart, comfortable curvature for easy smoking. Up front, the bowl stands on a rounded heel, marking the start of its impressive flare out to an inward-sloping rim, with this rim additionally showcasing the bowl's ovoid shaping. The stummel is here dressed in the warm, grain-defining chestnut stain of the Trademark finish, revealing handsome grain throughout the briar.
