    Introduction

    This is an introduction so I'll narcissisticly ramble on about myself. I've been a pipe smoker for over 50 years. My favorites are Castello with a carved or blasted finish. Bought my first Searock in 1963 and still smoke it. Have about 125 pipes in my collection of which about 75 are Castellos and the remainders are some Ser Jacopo, Mastro, Caminetto along with a few meerschaums. I mainly smoke English. I'm new to the forums and look forward to having a good time.

    Welcome Searock Fan to PSU and yes indeed Sir those Castello’s are fine looking Briars, don’t own one but will remedy that one day.

    Searock Fan, welcome! It's a funny thing, but of all the pipes I own, I don't have a Castello! I may have to buy myself an early Christmas present this year. Something like this might fit the bill. Reasonably priced, but does have some issues... I'm patient.
