Don Carlos pipes are hand-made by Bruto Sordini and his wife Rosaria in Cagli, in the province of Pesaro Urbino, in the areas where the so-called "Pesarese school" was created. Bruto Sordini was founder together with Giancarlo Guidi of Ser Jacopo della Gemma and, later he sharpened his technique at "Il Ceppo" of Giorgio Imperatori. In 1992 he founded the company RES and created the Don Carlos pipes. Unique shapes like MELOS, HYDRA, MONTANA, SEMICROMA, DISAMARA, BOLERO together with more classic shapes, make up the production of Don Carlos pipes. Bruto uses only Italian briar with manual processing, to guarantee an excellent smokability to each pipe.
