Chacom Richmond 403, 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.

Chacom hasn’t sold the Richmond line for a few years at the very least, as they’re constantly introducing new models. Sometimes this is a good thing – innovation is to be lauded, after all – but sometimes it’s sad to see great models fall out of production. Like this Richmond; it’s a lovely, sturdy Dublin shape with a beautiful golden-brown stain, along with two very distinguishing amber-like accents to keep things interesting.

The pipe is completely unsmoked and comes with its own box and sock, which is a remarkable achievement for a discontinued line like this one. The bowl coating is factory-original, which should help ease in its first smokes.
