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.

Chacom’s Corona line isn’t made anymore, which is a shame. As with this one, it was a line of pipes with a light, blonde stain and an amber-like stem. With such a light stain, it’s typically only possible to use particularly excellent briar, as even the tiniest natural flaw in the wood would be clear to see. Hence, the briar that became this Corona was excellent, with swirling flame grain patterns circulating around its stummel. The shape is quite interesting, too; the pipe is essentially a billiard, but it has the bead lines of a Rhodesian, so we’ve labeled it as such.

The pipe is completely unsmoked and comes with its original box and sock.
