Francesco Ganci is a young Genoese craftsman who produces high quality tobacco pipes.
He started to carve pipes relatively late but today he is one of the most quoted Italian manufacturers of 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.
And this pipe derives from the rough tailpiece of a double bass.
Francesco was working a piece of pear wood to turn it into a tailpiece when he decided to make a pipe out of it by following the curved shapes that characterize the upper part of the double bass.
Starting from the technical side, to which he gives great importance to have a always pleasant smoke, Francesco Ganci makes pipes respecting the grain and the design of the briar.
Here he wanted to enhance the veining of pear wood.
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 handling, 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.
Tobacco pipes with classic shapes characterized by the genuine personal vision of elegance by Francesco Ganci.
Here we propose a pipe symbol of the production of Ganci, the tobacco pipe called tomato because of its shape.
For the tomato pipe, Francesco took inspiration from the rounded lines of the double bass.
A free hands pipe completely handcrafted with patience, following and enhancing pear wood.
The tomato pipe is rounded but slender, light and snappy, transmits dynamism!
The Ganci tomato pipe has a natural glossy finish that enhances the quality of pear wood.
Ganci left a cumberland mouthpiece, very worked and with curved lines in contrast ..
The curved lines of the mouthpiece are in contrast with the curved lines of the torch.
This makes the pipe very elegant, a sculpture pipe, a masterpiece, suitable to be shown in worldly events.
But Ganci's free hands pipe is light and smokes very well.
