Francesco Ganci is a young Genoese craftsman who produces high quality tobacco pipes.
He started sculpting pipes relatively late but today he is one of the most quoted emerging Italian briar pipe producers and at the peak of success.
Francesco Ganci had important teachers including his friend Mimmo Romeo.
The reason for his success is due to his ability to masterfully handle tools, chisels and knives, to his pragmatism, his imagination and his continuous search for quality.
In complete solitude, drawing inspiration from nature or the surrounding world, in the luthier workshop, he thinks and realizes his new pipes ... true works of art.
And this pipe derives from the raw tailpiece of a double bass.
Francesco was working a piece of briar to turn it into a tailpiece when he decided to make a pipe from it following the curved shapes that characterize the upper part of the double bass.
Starting from the technical part, to which he gives a lot of importance to always have a pleasant smoke, Francesco Ganci creates pipes respecting the grain and the design of the briar.
Here he wanted to enhance the grain of the briar, clearly visible under the sandblasting.
Before producing and marketing a pipe, Francesco Ganci, with the experience of the luthier, tastes the softness and flexibility of the briar then, as a great passionate smoker, tests the shape, the manageability, the lines, the angles, the dimensions, the balance of 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 Francesco Ganci's personal genuine vision of elegance.
Here we propose a pipe that symbolizes the production of Ganci, the tobacco pipe called tomato due to 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, it transmits dynamism!
The Ganci tomato pipe has a natural sandblasted finish that enhances the quality of the briar.
Ganci left a contrasting cumberland mouthpiece, very worked and curved lines.
The curved lines of the mouthpiece contrast with the curved lines of the pentagonal shank.
This makes the pipe very elegant, a sculpture pipe, a masterpiece, suitable for showing off in social events.
But Ganci's free hands pipe is light and smokes very well.
