Chacom Millenium Smooth Blowfish 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’s Millennium series was a limited edition set of pipes released yearly in the 2000s. They were designed by Yves Grenard, who was Chacom’s director from 1971 to 2007, and who also happened to be an important figure in France’s Confrérie des Maîtres-Pipiers (roughly: ‘Brotherhood of Master Pipe-makers’). This Millennium model is very distinct indeed, being something of a hybrid between a Danish-style blowfish and a more traditional bent billiard. The bowl’s broad flanks allow it to show off a dazzling mixture of cross grain and bird’s-eye, while its silver trim ties the overall design together nicely.

This Chacom is completely unsmoked, with an original bowl coating from the Saint-Claude workshop to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original presentation tube and sleeve. While the pipe has a stinger, this is removable for those who prefer to smoke without one.
