My name is Mario Fenu and the pipes you can see on this page are all hand-made by myself.

I live and work in Varese, a city surrounded by woods and lakes and located in northem Italy, pretty close to Swiss borderline.

I handcraft all my pipes using Italian briarwood*; I try to obtain unique pieces which I sell directly without any intermediary in order to achieve a good balance between quality and prices. Moreover I handwork my pipes by means of natural products so that I can avoid useless pollution and damages to the environment. Mouthpieces are prepared to be provided with a 9-mm. filter and, on demand, can be made with a traditional hole.

In designing my pipes I prefer to follow classical lines, but I can easily work according to each customer's need and I can work on models which customers are specifically asking me to create. I personally take care of all the different manufacture phases and I am of course available in case any problem occurs after the purchase.

The prices of my products start from 78 euro (shipment fees included).

* I use briarwood provided to me by the Romeos, a family from Liguria (an italian seaside region) that works on briarwood since more than fifty years. I would really appreciate that everyone who is about to ligth a pipe, whether it comes from a sophisticated brand or from a less famous one, would keep in his mind both the woodsman who finds the right log and the sawyer who cuts it; two very important tasks in pipes handworking which are often forgotten.
