Francesco Ganci is a young Genoese artisan producing high quality tobacco pipes.
He started to carve pipes relatively late but today he is one of the most quoted Italian manufacturers of emerging briar pipes and at the height of his success.
Francesco Ganci had important masters including his friend Mimmo Romeo.
The reason for its success is due to its ability to masterfully handle instruments, chisels and knives, to its pragmatism, its imagination and its continuous search for quality.
In complete solitude, drawing inspiration from nature or the surrounding world, in the luthier's laboratory, he thinks and realizes his new pipes ... true works of art.
He sculpts the shapes by hand using exclusively Italian briar with his proper seasoning supplied by Mimmo Romeo.
The minimum aging of the briar is 5 years and takes place at controlled temperature and humidity.
Starting from the technical side, to which he gives a lot of importance to have an always pleasant smoke, Francesco Ganci makes pipes respecting the grain and the design of the briar.
Before producing and selling a pipe, Francesco Ganci, with the experience of the luthier, tastes the softness and flexibility of the briar; then, as a great passionate smoker, he tests the shape, the manageability, the lines, the angles, the dimensions, the balance of the tobacco pipe.
Exceptional pipes are created, technically and qualitatively perfect, very light and elegant pipes.
Wonderful pipes considered among the best in the world but to be used every day.
