Chacom Neptune 266 Smooth Bent Dublin 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.

The Neptune was a line offered by Chacom many years ago, and is now long out of production. Here’s my question, then: did Chacom name this pipe after the planet, or after the Roman god of the sea? I suppose it doesn’t matter – the pipe is lovely in any case. It is a fairly wide, quarter-bent Dublin, but the most striking thing about the pipe is its three-tone color scheme; the stem is jet black, the base and shank of the bowl are dark brown, and the rim and shank end are a burnt orange. It’s very pleasing on the eyes, and the stain isn’t so heavy that it completely obscures the natural grain patterns underneath. The pipe is also fairly light too, making it a comfortable smoker.

This Chacom is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It is fitted with a stinger, but as with most Chacom pipes, this stinger can be unscrewed and removed if the new owner prefers to use the pipe without one. The pipe also comes with its original box and sleeve.
