I’m very tempted to pull the trigger on a Castello Sea Rock 33 and was wondering if anyone had opinions on the 33 shape.

Do you like the shape? It's a pipe, it's very useful for burning tobacco. There are many others like it but this one could be yours!

Castello's are nice smokers, but the shape is really up to you!

Post a picture and let us see what your looking at.

The older castello's had a diamond in the stem and the more recent ones have a bar. The shape is really up to you to enjoy, we will enjoy your happiness with the briar along with you but our taste on any particular shape should not matter. Castello's are well regarded pipes with aged briar.

Perhaps more importantly than the shape is who your purchasing it from. There are site sponsors that I wish I would have started buying from when I first started, rather than learning a several hundred dollars lesson.
