Chacom Golden Grain 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.

I have a real fondness for Chacom’s Golden Grain. It’s a long-discontinued line, and the kind of high-grade pipe that Chacom charges hundreds of euros for these days. The staining is just wonderful, appearing to be a contrast stain of blonde and black that shines in such a curious way. The shape of this one is a very traditional Rhodesian with a silver collar, completed by a simple black stem.

This Chacom is completely unsmoked. It comes with a stinger, but this stinger is designed to be easily removed if the buyer prefers to smoke without one. The pipe also comes with its original box and sleeve.
