Chacom Baccara Smooth Straight Billiard 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.

If you know contemporary Chacom pipes, you’ll also know that this doesn’t look like the Baccara Chacom makes today. This appears to be an older rendition of the line, and one that I have to say, I quite prefer. Rather than an aluminum cap and band, this Baccara features a beautiful, contrast stain and what appears to be a perspex stem, somewhat like the ones GBD used to use. The contrast staining does wonders to bring out the natural flame grain of the briar, and the translucent stem gives extra flair to the overall design.

Despite being discontinued, this Baccara is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. The pipe also comes with its original box and sleeve.
