Chacom Green Trekking Smooth Bent Acorn 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.

This pipe from Chacom’s no longer produced ‘Trekking’ line is interesting for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious: it is green, which is a fairly unorthodox stain for briar. It’s still a fairly reserved hue, however, and it is light enough to allow the briar’s natural grain patterns to shine through. The other interesting aspect is the shape, being somewhere between the Danish and French ‘acorn’ shapes. Chacom did, however, enlist a number of iconic Danish carvers to design shapes for them in the 1960s, so this may be a result of that collaboration, brought back to life a few decades later.
