Chacom Baltik 13 Smooth Bent Billiard 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 Baltik line was one of pipes with stems made to look like amber – Baltic amber, in fact, hence the name. It’s a beautiful design choice, and one that lends an air of old-world charm to the pipe; this is especially true for this model, which is a full bent billiard/brandy whose angle almost takes it into Oom Paul territory. In other words, it’s taken a leaf out of the most classic of designs. But Chacom didn’t simply slap a fancy stem on any old bowl. The stummel itself is paired excellently with the amberoid stem, being similarly golden, with a healthy gleam.

This pipe is completely unsmoked. The pipe also comes with its original box and sleeve.
