The form and style of Gabriele Dal Fiume's pipes range from the classic to the free hand.
Dal Fiume is often inspired by the movements of fish in the water and by the movements of the sea and of nature in general.
Its logo is born from the union between the spirals of the Nautilus and the perfection of the egg, symbol of fertility.
The Nautilus pipe line is the premium, high grade line by Gabriele dal Fiume.
Gabriele selects personally selects the briar blocks, which he buys in Liguria from Mimmo Romero and in Tuscany.
The briar blocks are left to dry in the air in the workshop where Gabriele Dal Fiume periodically checks the seasoning, checking the color and weight.
No block is used before the 10 years of aging.
This is why his pipes are very light and the smoke is dry.
All of Gabriele's pipes are hand-carved and the hole in the brazier and stem are made manually with extreme precision.
Pipe mouthpieces are handcrafted from high-quality ebonite or cumberland, often with a hardwood or other exotic wood ring.
Depending on the design of the briar and the creative mood, Gabriele creates smooth, explosive, rustic pipes or any combination that serves to make the pipe artistically unique.
Here we have a polished light-colored briar pipe in the shape of a small horn of the Nautilus line.
The shape is particular, a freehand shape recalls the classic curved Doublin shape.
The shape is slender and decidedly original, following the grain of the light briar.
The contrast between the polished part and the upper part of the pipe chimney left natural is very beautiful.
The finish is made with carnauba wax and enhances the quality of light briar.
Gabriele Dal Fiume annually produces only 30 maximum 40 briar pipes, all unique pieces.
Each Gabriele pipe is a unique and unrepeatable piece and the photos you see portray this exclusive pipe, the same, once purchased, will be removed from the catalog.
