Francesco Ganci is a young Genoese craftsman producing high quality tobacco pipes.
He began to sculpt the pipes relatively late but today is one of the Italian producers of root pipes emerging most quoted and at the peak of success.
Francesco Ganci has had important masters including his friend Mimmo Romeo.
The reason for its success is due to its ability to masterfully handle the tools, chisels and knives, its pragmatism, its imagination and its continuous search for quality.
In complete solitude, drawing inspiration from nature or the surrounding world, in the violinmaker's laboratory, he thinks and realizes his new pipes ... real works of art.
Sculpted with the knife, by hand, the forms using exclusively Italian root with its right maturing provided by Mimmo Romeo.
The minimum seasoning of the root is 5 years and takes place at controlled temperature and humidity.
Starting from the technical part, to which it gives great importance to have an always pleasant smoke, Francesco Ganci creates pipes respecting the grain and the design of the root.
Before producing and selling a pipe, Francesco Ganci, with the experience of the violin maker, tastes the softness and flexibility of the root, then from a great passionate smoker, test the shape, the manageability, the lines, the angles, the dimensions, the balance of the tobacco pipe.
The result is exceptional pipes, technically and qualitatively perfect, very light and elegant pipes.
Wonderful pipes considered among the best in the world but to be used every day.
Tobacco pipes with classic shapes characterized by a personal, genuine vision of elegance by Francesco Ganci.
Here we propose a pipe symbol of the production of Hooks, the tobacco pipe called Isetta.
For the Isetta pipe, Francesco took inspiration from the famous machine.
The Isetta is small, rounded but slender, light and snappy, conveys dynamism!
The Ganci Isetta pipe has a rustic finish and was then colored in black.
Hooks has left a contrasting ring in white galalite, inserted on the wide and comfortable mouthpiece.
This makes the pipe very elegant, an evening pipe, suitable to be flaunted in worldly events.
