Castello pipes were started by Carlo Scotti in 1947, in Cantu, Italy. He not only redefined the Italian pipe but established the Castello pipe as the mark of quality. Castello pipes would take Carlo Scotti from a tiny artisan studio and anonymity, to a state of the art production facility and the peak of the pipe world. Every Castello pipe is completely hand made, from start to finish, from the finest available briar and has a hand cut Lucite stem. Castello is the only maker that uses briar that has been aged for at least 10 years. The Castello pipe is thought by many smokers to be the world's most consistent smoking pipe.
Sea Rock, Old Antiquari and Vergin - the K's and G's refer to the size. The more K's the bigger the pipe and after 4K's if bigger then it's a G.
All Smooth Grades' - Trademark, "Castello", Collection etc. The K's and G's refer to the grain quality and have nothing to do with the size.
Castello Note: The quality of the briar is the same whatever the finish or grade.
