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 master 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.
He sculpts the shapes with a knife, by hand, using exclusively Italian briar with its right seasoning provided by Mimmo Romeo.
The minimum seasoning of the briar is 5 years and takes place at controlled temperature and humidity.
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.
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 Isetta.
For the Isetta pipe, Francesco took inspiration from the famous machine.
The Isetta is small, rounded but slender, light and snappy, it conveys dynamism!
The Ganci Bent Apple pipe model Isetta has a rustic finish and was then colored black.
Ganci left a contrasting white galalith ferrule, inserted on the large and comfortable mouthpiece.
This makes the pipe very elegant, an evening pipe, suitable for showing off in social events.
But Ganci's Isetta pipe smokes very well.
Thanks to the thickness of the walls, a dry and fresh smoke.
