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.
