Description

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 hadn’t heard of Chacom’s Artisan line before. It doesn’t seem to have been produced for many years, but Chacom does have a habit of redesigning their catalog quite frequently. Either way, it’s a beautiful pipe. It’s more Danish than I’m used to seeing from the French make (aside from their collaborations with Tom Eltang), but that’s not a bad thing at all. It’s wider and sturdier than the traditional Dublin, with a shape somewhat reminiscent of Sixten Ivarsson’s Stanwell models. Unlike Stanwell, this Chacom is dressed in a striking, ruby red stain, with a white band accenting its shank.

The pipe is completely unsmoked, which is always nice to see with discontinued pipe series. It also comes with its original box and sock.
