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.
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 great importance to have a always pleasant smoke, Francesco Ganci makes pipes respecting the grain and the design of the briar.
In the BlowFish pipe the briar exaltation is maximum. The lines of the Blowfish pipe divide the partridge eyes from the flaming 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 handling, the lines, the angles, the dimensions, 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.
Here we propose a pipe symbol of the production of Ganci, the tobacco pipe called BlowFish due to its shape.
For the BlowFish pipe Francesco has taken inspiration from the rounded lines of nature.
A free hands pipe completely handmade with patience, with a cross cut cut following and enhancing the briar.
The Blowfish pipe is small, rounded but slender, light and snappy, transmits dynamism!
The Ganci Blowfish pipe has a natural glossy finish that enhances the quality of the briar.
The design of the briar, like a painting, wraps the pipe and the short asymmetric shank.
Ganci left a contrasting ebonite mouthpiece, very worked and with curved lines ..
A mouthpiece made without the use of a lathe that joins perfectly with the blowfish pipe.
This makes the pipe very elegant, a sculpture pipe, a masterpiece, suitable to be shown in worldly events.
But the free hands pipe by Ganci is very light and smokes very well.
