Got my second searock from a post office yesterday. It’s a pipe from the time before K-grading and stamped as sa31, if my memory serves me well, pipes from year 1955 to 1965 have the sa/sb/sc sizing. When I’m checking shape 31 Castellos from the Internet, there’s quite a variation of desings what comes stem curvature and a ratio of length between stem and shank. Still, I find this a peculiar one.View attachment 170583View attachment 170584
That's great. I really like the long stem.

Sometimes you don't choose a pipe, a pipe chooses you. That happened here. The least expensive new Castello I've ever seen, I guess cuz a blast hides imperfections.....don't know. But the price was not why I bought it. And I'm not even normally attracted to blasts at all.
This thing chose me.
This will give a shorter smoke than most of my pipes, but no doubt a very satisfactory one.
5 5/8" long chamber .75 w x 1.50 d
I hope these pics turn out o.k.......never know if they will be cropped off or what.

Castello 75th Anniversary shape 33 pot. I had an estate "chubby Canadian" that I sold a couple of years ago because it didn't smoke well. I'm hoping this one smokes better because I love the way it looks. Though it looks like a nose warmer it's actually 135mm long and, despite the short stem, clenches comfortably. Mind you, I'm used to the thick Castello bits!View attachment 155247View attachment 155248View attachment 155250
What a fine looking pipe!

Just received this Castello great line collection pezzo unico dublin This gigantic chunk of briar weighs 207 grams! Obviously not a clencher or an everyday smoker. More of a "what is that wierdo spending his money on" kind of pipe.:eek: In a pinch, it would also be a pretty effective club!;)View attachment 135662
I love that finish, same finish as my new one I thinkFE104F5A-0FA6-400C-A0DF-9457B6F1F006.jpeg
