Il Duca

The passion of Massimiliano Rimensi for tobacco pipes arose in 1990, when he bought a "Dublin" and felt captivated by these wonderful objects. After smoking a few, the idea of ​​being able to make a pipe according to his personal taste began to spring up in his head. Thus, once he found the necessary materials he went to his uncle's joinery, where he used to work in summer since the age of 14. From that day his passion for the briar grew stronger and stronger.

Massimiliano chose the name "Duca Pipes", as the grades assigned to his pipes, with reference to his city Ferrara, which notoriously has medieval/renaissance origins.

The materials used are of first quality starting from the briar, which Massimo chooses personally by buying it in different regions of Italy. Subsequently, the briar has to be seasoned for at least 2 or 3 years according to strict criteria.

Thanks to his artistic nature, Massimiliano loves experimenting with all possible materials: ebonite, methacrylate, horn and bone of various types, olive wood, rosewood, bamboo either black or white, amboina, tulip wood and other exotic woods, from which he tries, through particular processes, to enhance their potentials more and more.

Therefore, the Duca Pipes are always looking for new aesthetic and functioal solutions, which includes the study of forms and experimentalism as well as innovation and harmony.
