Chacom Hexagone 43 Smooth Bent Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked [SOLD]

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.

With our recent batch of new old stock pipes, we’ve had a number of Chacoms, and one series in particular that our customers have been putting in requests for is the Hexagone. From what I’ve been able to discern, it was a short-lived series a few decades ago, but as often happens with such pipes, once it was gone, people started to realize just how much they liked it. Thankfully, I managed to find another one – this bent billiard model. As the name suggests, the Hexagone was a series of pipes that were more or less traditionally-inclined, except for a distinct, hexagonal shank and exotic wood band (I’d guess boxwood). This one wears a very natural, strawberry-blonde stain, which Chacom tends to reserve for their higher-grade pipes. It does have some particularly nice bird’s-eye and cross grain to show off, after all.

This Chacom is also completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help break it in. As with many Chacom pipes, it comes as standard with a stinger, but this stinger is threaded so as to be easily removable. It can therefore be smoked with or without one.
