The shape and style of Gabriele's pipes range from classic to freehand and always with a twist of Dal Fiume's personal style.
Dal Fiume is often inspired by the movements of fish in the water and the movements of the sea and nature in general.
His logo was born from the union between the spirals of the Nautilus and the perfection of the egg, a symbol of fertility.
Gabriele personally selects the briar blocks, which he buys in Liguria from Mimmo Romeo and in Tuscany.
The briar blocks are left to dry in the air in the workshop where Gabriele Dal Fiume periodically checks the seasoning, checking the color and weight.
No blocks are used before 6 years of aging.
This is why his pipes are very light and the smoke is dry.
All Gabriele's pipes are hand-sculpted and the hole in the brazier and stem are made manually with extreme precision.
Pipe mouthpieces are hand crafted from high quality ebonite or cumberland, often fitted with a hardwood or other exotic wood ring.
Depending on the design of the briar and the creative mood, Gabriele creates smooth, explosive, rustic pipes or any combination that serves to make the pipe artistically unique.
Here we have a sandblasted pipe in the shape of a tomato or, as Gabrile defines it, in the shape of a peach snuffbox, a pipe from the Tartaruga line.
The shape is rounded and decidedly original, very worked but very comfortable to handle.
The pipe stem that ends with a shiny flock and the cumberland mouthpiece is very beautiful.
The finish is done with a fine sandblasting.
Gabriele Dal Fiume annually produces only 30 maximum 40 briar pipes, all unique pieces.
Each Gabriele pipe is a unique and unrepeatable piece and the photos you see portray this exclusive pipe, the same, once purchased, will be removed from the catalog.
If you need more detailed photos, we will be happy to send them to you.
