The other day was IPSD or to the unknowing International Pipe Smoking Day. It was a day pipe smokers would celebrate their pipes, have a TAD or PAD attack and possibly do something about it.

I hadn't planned to do much more than to celebrate by smoking my Mark Twain MM Cob with some aged Esoterica Tilbury but it ended up quite differently.

While on the Smoking Forum a fellow brother of the pipe placed a glorious Castello Fiamatta in shape 55 up for sale, a magnificent pipe in its own right but this was very special in that it had crushed rock used for the adornment where it meets the stem.

So to fulfill the idea behind IPSD, and the fact that my birthday is the 24th of the month, I broke down and purchased it. I won't have it by my birthday but it should be here by March 2nd which would have been my dear Levi's 13th birthday when I will celebrate his life and having shared so much with him for the time we had together.

Well the Castello arrived and I expected it to be a Castello Fiamatta 55 with crushed rock adornment but it's a Castello Collection Fiamatta K grade with stone adornment 55, a higher grade than I expected, what a treat!

Thank you and I heartily agree with you. Here I am enjoying my first smoke of F&T Special Brown Flake and it is a fantastic smoke, cheers.

A perfect example of the Rolls-Royce of Italian pipes, to my mind.
