Castello # 403 "Old America BIG-LINE " 3:18 *New*
The OLD AMERICA BIG-LINE is the 2020 Pipe of the Year. This # 3 of 18 is an Occhio di Pernice with stunning birdseye. To see a pipe this large with such superb graining is remarkable.
The Hawksbill was created by Castello. Often copied never duplicated. It is only appropriate that these very large ones are Castello's. It just would not do for some other maker to have done such.
The pipe itself scaled up has some minor differences to regular sized ones. The bowl shape is the same while the shank proportionately is slightly shorter. A aesthetic decision to keep the style and still be physically comfortable to smoke - which it is.
This stunning unique pipe will deliver one very long cool smoke.
