I met with Marco this weekend in Rome at Novelli. He confirmed that he had no idea what L stands for. He was stumped. And he is the master. And then he said something that blew me away, he said (paraphrase), ‘Castello does that sometimes.’ And he shrugged his shoulders. That was the kind of knowledge you get only from the horse’s mouth. The Castello lore goes deep in the collecting world.

The picture reminds me of old times. Thanks

First Castello, an Old Antiquari Pot. Due to the local bomb-cyclone, I probably won’t have a chance to take it out until tomorrow, but, for now, I am quite pleased. Aesthetically, I understand why folks say that a Castello pipe won’t be lonely for long. Now to find a shape 55 that I don’t despise looking at.

Alright, it took two weeks, but, I finally found a make of one of their more popular shapes that caught my eye. It’s a Castello ‘Castello’ KKKK Shape 55, with a silver military mount. The bowl twist sold me immediately, and while completely smooth isn’t a common thing for me, I still think it looks quite good.

Being a little over 5 inches, with a chamber diameter of .78, and a depth of 1.24 inches, and all together weighing only 30g, this is quite a small pipe. I know many of you adore/have experience with this shape, so I was wondering, I was looking to dedicate a pipe to Latakia-based blends, do you think that this pipe would do well for that, or should I have this pipe stick to my Virginias, like my other Castello? Also, surprisingly, I’m not looking for the sentiment that has been shared since time immemorial that you can smoke anything out of any pipe. I’m aware, we all are, I’m just shooting my shot.

That's an absolutely stunning 55.. Military mount no less...

Thank you ?It’s marked Castello over Sea Rock Briar KK16 Hand Made
Made in Cantu over Italy.
Carlo Scotti encircled. I’m loving the rustication.
Happy smokes

The matte finish is interesting, and the stack shape is one I’ve been thinking about getting into lately. Maybe it used to have a wax finish on it?
