Chacom Golden Grain 271 Smooth Bent Rhodesian 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.

Chacom was not wrong in naming this one; ‘Golden Grain’ is correct, as this classically inclined Rhodesian does indeed have grain that is both golden in the sense of being generally excellent and in the sense of the color. These days you’d have to pay several hundred euros to get a high grade Chacom like this one, but we’ve decided to offer this new and entirely unsmoked example of French pipe-making excellence for a price somewhat more modest.

The pipe also comes with its original box and sock.
