    Notes
    The pipe comes with his original sock. 

    It's always great to look at the outcome when one of the most talented pipemaker in the world makes a classic shape, much more if the shape is one of the most typical in Castello's production: the #55. The medium size dimensions of this pipe are perfeclty balanced with an overall feeling of harmony where everything seems to be in the right place: in the transition between shank and bowl there's a boxwood accent and its light color elegantly contrast the dark sandblasted finish; the rounded top of the bowl softens the walls steekness torward the shank; the german ebonite mouthpiece is perfect from the insertion in the boxwood to the bottom. Its pure simplicity and the care in details are the most exciting features of this pipe. 

    The pipe has been professionally cleaned. The mouthpiece is the original one and it has been sterilized. Our cleaning process could be considered as ‘conservation intervention’. We save all original stamps, marks and logos on the mouthpiece. The stain of the pipe is the original one and it is not modified at all. The chamber is cleaned from the carbon cake of the previous smoker. We apply a very light layer of vegetal carbon.
