Francesco Ganci is a young craftsman from Genoa who grew up alongside world masters pipemakers. From some years he has been producing entirely hand-made pipes, preferring to work with a knife instead of the backing pad.
He is among the few to try to do Blowfish-shaped pipes, and among his highlights are the Bulldogs and the Tomatoes.
Francesco Ganci's pipes are made with meticulous craftsmanship, are light and smoke really well. The mouthpieces are made from Bakelite which is also worked by hand.
Francesco is therefore already a pipemaker on which the watcful eyes of enthusiasts and distributors have already rested. Surely one of the rising stars among the Italian pipemakers.
