    This is my lone Castello in my collection. At one point years ago I owned 7 at one time and all were great smokers as is my current one. This particular one is a Castello Collection Occhi di Pernice Dublin. The pics are not that great, as the birdseye on both sides is much nicer in person. It is a fine example of an Occhio because the birdseye on each side is nice and even and the cross cut on the front and back of the bowl is also pretty uniform. It is was one of my best scores ever on ebay price wise.

    Harris - that is gorgeous, awesome birdseye. I am rapidly becoming a fan of the Dublin shape.

    I've been on the fence for a long time. I'd like to buy one, but I heard they're famous for a really open draw.
    Now, I know that's a good thing, generally; but some have said it is so open, you have to learn to pack it differently.
    What's the opinion around here?

    Cortez - I have several Castellos that I smoke regularly - I do not pack them differently than any other pipe I own and have never had an issue.

    The only comments I've heard about the draw on a Castello is that the new pipes have a much better draw than the older Carlo Scotti pipes. If you look at one of the clear/amber/Gold stems from the Carlo Scotti era you can hold them up to the light and see that at the button they were drilled with a fairly tight draw. It's not uncommon for those to be opened up a bit. IIR there was another post here recently about the straws that used to come with Castello's and the size that may be of interest as well.

    The draw is more open so you have to pack a little tighter,at least on mine which are older ones.

    six, thanks buddy.

    cortez, I do pack my Castello a tad tighter than my artisan pipes but not that much as my artisan pipes are drilled at around 4mm where my Castello is 4.3mm. They are in my opinion one of the best smoking pipes on the market. I would own more if they came with vulcanite stems. I never had one that did not smoke cool and dry. They can also be had for not a lot of money on the estate market, plenty are available for 150.00 give or take a few bucks. You should definitely try one if it is in your price range, they smoke better than any Dunhill I have owned.

    I'll begin by posting my pride and joy: Castello Collection GreatLine Fiammata.
    It's rather big, and thus It is perfect for a long evening reading or relaxing with a nice movie or some music. The grain is so beautiful that the picture doesn't make her justice. That's the one Castello I'm most proud of

    Not the best of pics but great pipes no doubt.

    A Castello was my first fine pipe. It turned me on to a whole new world of smoking pleasure.

    Wow , nice military mount. I've got only one, very particular because it has been created for a shop in Milano (a luxury shop selling luxury knives, expensive shaving stuff, pens, etc. and pipes naturally). It has a gold military mount

    Thanks Chris, it's a really good smoker and the army mounted system allows to open the pipe even when it's hot without fear, it's nice.

    The next one is sometimes referred as "la pescatora" shape (the fisherman shape, even if literally it shoud be translated as the fishergirl). It's an old one, probably from the 60's. As you may notice there is not the usual white bar as logo, but a dot that looks like a little diamond. Of course it's plastic, but shiny like a little diamond.
    This is because it was produced for export in the USA. In those times Mr Scotti decided to put a little "diamond" for pipes to export to USA. I bought it used years ago, probably someone who bought it during a trip to the USA ?

    I paid it really little money because it was in horrible conditions;so I send it to Castello asking if they could help the poor pipe, and a month later they gave it back to me shining and nice, although there is a little fissure in the interior of the tobacco chamber unfortunately. They "closed" it with ash and honey as it was very little and high in the chamber, an old trick....I smoke it very carefully, not filling it up to the real top of the bowl, from time to time. But it's going great.

    And here is another Castello, shape 33, which is a short, chubby canadian that is very nice to hold in your hand. It is a searock (sort of rusticated) collection.

    I also have a 55 shape, which is more little but similar even if the bowl is a little different. I'll show it later (eheh searching for the pic in my pc...)

    Wow, Dave, what an incredible display of Castellos. I think that I could have spent two hours just looking over those pipes and tobacciana! It looks like you received some well earned recognition as well.

    Those strap stands with the Castello castle logo are uber-cool!

    Wow Dave, your Castello pipes display is gorgeous. Did you come to Italy to choose them personally ?

    I have one similar to some of what you have showed, I dont know how to call them in english, those with spiral shank, hope I got it right ehehe
    Really love those models, and I have never seen that spiral work on the bowl....wow, think I'll have to visit Castello before Christmas eheheh

    EDIT: sorry guys, my grammar is much less than stellar eheheh

    When I took delivery of what I thought was my 14th Castello shape 215 earlier this week I wanted to snap a group photo of them but when I dug them out it turned out I had 15. Oh well, here they are.

    I posted these elsewhere but this seems the proper place to show them. Both Occhio di Pernice. They are both glorious smokers, neither of which had been smoked more than a couple of times when I purchased them.






    The second of the two is a large pipe and the airway is larger than that of the smaller pipe. Both are easy draws.

    OK let me see what I have here.

    This is my newest, winging its way to me from Italy, an estate Castello Castello:

    Castello 4k Collection hawkbill:

    I think this Sea Rock is a KK...

    K Occhio de Pernice (no idea how it got the OdP stamping TBH but it smokes like a champ)

    I forget how many Ks this Natural Vergin is

    KK Old Antiquari

    Castello "G" (one of my favorites... terrible photo)

    And I forget how many K's this NV is as well

    I have others, and more have passed through my hands (including 3 55's, that shape just doesn't work for me...), but that's what I have as far as pictures go for now.

    after a long time pondering the extravagance of this purchase,i finally pulled the trigger on buying this pipe.
    i looked far and wide on the internets to find this particular shape, but i couldn't find it anywhere. i didn't want just any bent billiard; i like this one. in the end, i decided the remorse of not having it would be worse than the shame of spending too much for it.

    Thanks curl, i dig your castello as well, it sure is a beauty. I am more a fan of straight pipes, but i'd take that one any day of the week! The blast on it is stunning and flows nicely with the shape of the pipe. Just a tip, look at estates before you buy new. There is absolutely nothing wrong with buying new, if you get the right deal, but Castellos are hard to find a good deal on new. If you look around and be patient, you can score one with very little use and wear on it for less than half the original price. The two above that i own both had 10 or less smokes on them and looked basically brand new. The paneled came with original sock and box, scored for $200. The vergin kk came with original sock and no box, from Italy, scored for $150. Both those pipes together still cost less than a new Castello. Just a tip, take it or leave it, not trying to judge or talk down on those that buy new.

    believe me, i looked around quite a bit for this same or similar pipe at a lower price.
    it wasn't showing up anywhere else but on smoking pipes, not ebay, not on a dozen other sites, not even on castello's own website. hell, i didn't even need it to be a castello. i just really liked the unusual bend of this pipe.

    the smoking pipes guy said he hadn't seen a castello with this profile since 2010.
    i knew if someone swooped in a bought it, i wouldn't have been able to forevermore hold my peace
    i'd a hunted that cocksucker down to retrieve this pipe

    Nice going Dave.

    You don't see Castello using bamboo very often. That is a beauty (actually, they all are).

    The silver work on the Lovat is cool.

    I am sure you got that top one from Briar Blues - it has a blue agate ring if I recall and they are quite rare.

    Yeah the Collection grade Bamboo isn't seen that often. The silver is a Natural Virgin Sea Rock 2000 P&T POY with a cool tobacco leaf.
    The Old Antiquari Agata is from BB I've only seen one other for sale and this could very well be that pipe years later.
    The shape 30 is a Sea Rock Pi.
    I posted some group photo's of the collections/sub collections that I had in mind in SF's Castello Group if you want to check them out.

    I own no Castello (yet?); but I am tempted after seeing all these very nice looking pipes!

    Two Firsts In One Pipe! I'm enjoying an early morning first smoke in a new pipe for my 215 collection as seen above. I love colored stems and I always wanted a green one in this shape collection and it is my first colored stem with a white bar. For what ever reason you don't see many with white bar compared to the Hallco trademark. The bowl is not as tall as I would like but the better than average rustication and my favored flared stem made this a must have piece!

    I had an interesting chat with peck last night about Costello's. He told me that before 2009 the draw was much tighter. From about 2009 on it is much more open. Any other thoughts?

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    The newer the pipe the better chance you will have a wide open draw. IDK if you can determine a hard date but the 2007 Kino stamp era is one but IMO pipes from the late 90's and on are wide open. Even the pipes that are restricted smoke just fine, I've only run into a couple that were unacceptable. I've smoked some that were opened up way to wide and I rather smoke the restricted pipes. You can clearly see the restriction in the colored stems I've posted photo's of the stem backlit before but I don't remember what board it was on.
    Opinions may vary and you can never say never with Castello.
    Here is a photo I just snapped.

    I actually said 2007 not 2009, because that is what Mike told me, and I believe everything he says. Or maybe I said 2009 - I was drinking.

    I have a couple older ones with the jewel on the stem and I find them a tight draw.

    I may be wrong, but Rick Newcomb's book "In Search Of Pipe Dreams" came out in 2006 I believe. In it he exstolled the virtues of a more open draw. Maybe Castello thought it a good idea to incorporate this in their future pipes?
    I always thought they were fine before. I have only purchased one in the last few years, and it seems to draw about the same as my old ones.

    Excellent sets of photos. Castello to me is still the benchmark against which all other brands must be compared. Makes one wonder how the newish carvers can charge a higher price than a Castello. I own only 5 in a collection of many brands. I think only Giancarlo Guidi of Ser Jacopo had more creativity than Castello, and I highly recommend that brand as well.

    I just received my first Castello today. It's a Sea Rock 12 KK with Carlo Scotti. Most Castellos are too big and heavy for me, but this one is just 36g and I love the rustication and the slender bit.

    The first smoke was great. Perfect draw and only a couple of relights with Quiet Nights. I think we have a winner!

    Here are two sculpted Castello pipes I picked up at the 2014 WCPS in Las Vegas. A '90 (43) shape 215 kk Collection and a '97 (50) shape 34 kkkk Collection and a group shot of my 34's.
