It’s been a long and winding road. The Castello Opera 44 collection is finally complete. But NEVER finished! Still some rare pipes to chase. The collection finally meets standards to present at shows.

Travel pipes and gear: Why I love Opera 44 pipes.

-

The oval shaped bowls fit perfectly in my large Dunhill 5-pipe carry case. In fact they fit perfectly in any case. I don’t have to think about which pipes to bring. They just work in any situation. And a perfect 30/45 minute smoke, which is about all you need when traveling. Examples of my Dunhill travel case with 4 Opera 44 pipes. This is my go-to travel setup.
