Chacom 168 Smooth Straight Apple Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Chacom is one of France’s most historic and iconic makes. Its founders, the Comoy family, began their career as boxwood pipe-makers in the early 1800s, before briar had even been discovered, with Henri Comoy (of Comoy’s fame) emigrating to England in 1879 and founding the country’s first briar pipe factory. In 1922, Henri and his nephews, the Chapuis, founded the Chapuis Comoy pipe factory in Saint-Claude, France, which shortly after began producing pipes bearing the partnered families’ names – ‘Cha’ for Chapuis, and ‘Com’ for Comoy. Chacom has been the biggest name in French pipes ever since.

I can’t seem to find a series name for this particular Chacom, but it appears to share a design with the long-discontinued Hexagone, which was Chacom’s line of hexagonal-shank pipes. In Any case, it’s a beautiful pipe; a traditional, straight apple, given a modern touch by its faceted shank. I’m not sure if the bands on the stem are boxwood or acrylic, but they’re also a nice touch.

This Chacom is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve. As with many Chacom pipes, it has a stinger, but this is removable if its buyer prefers to smoke without one.
