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.

As the name suggests, Chacom’s Hexagone line was one of traditionally-shaped pipes with hexagonal shanks, as well as what appears to be boxwood accents. It’s a subtle change to classic shaping conventions, but one that nevertheless lends a an interesting stylistic distinction to the pipe itself. This one, for example, is a traditional, quarter-bent pot, but the hexagonal motif and the color scheme give it an almost art deco aesthetic. It’s a great look.

The Hexagone line hasn’t been produced by Chacom for years, so it’s quite remarkable that this one has come to MBSD completely unsmoked. It has also retained its original box and sleeve. As with many Chacom pipes, this one has a stinger, but it is removable for those who prefer to smoke their pipes without one.
