Chacom Artisan 412 Smooth Bent Dublin Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked

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.

Chacom’s Artisan series is an interesting one. While it is no longer a series that is produced by Chacom, from what I’ve been able to gather, it was a series of more unorthodox shapes, paired with a hand-cut stem, and completed by an ivory-hued band. This one is a Dublin with a paneled, square shank – one with excellent bird’s-eye and cross grain, I must say.

Despite being from a discontinued series, this Artisan is completely unsmoked, with an original bowl coating to help break it in. It also comes with its original box and sleeve. As with most Chacom pipes, it comes with a stinger as standard, but this stinger is easily unscrewed if the pipe’s owner prefers to use it without one.
