Chacom Evolution 622, Smooth 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.

As you may be able to tell from the box, this isn’t an ordinary Chacom. Not that any Chacom is ordinary, but this one is a little different. It’s from part of a high-grade line released years ago. I haven’t seen one in a long time. Nice to be reunited.

I’m not entirely sure what ‘evolution’ meant in this context, but the pipe is pretty stellar. It’s a cutty shape of sorts, a quite plump one, with beautiful bird’s-eye grain and a fiery red-orange finish. The shank is collared by what seems to be ivorite or something similar, and the stem is genuine hand cut cumberland, which Chacom only uses on their high-grade series. The pipe does have a stinger, but as with all Chacom pipes, it’s removable for those who would prefer to smoke without.

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