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.

We’ve had a few Chacom Richmond pipes come in recently – only a handful, mind, but more than I’d expect for a line that’s long been discontinued. It seems that discontinuing the Richmond line was a poor choice by Chacom, as every Richmond I’ve put on our website has sold in a matter of days. As far as I remember, this one is the last.

It’s a great line, or was. The grain is extraordinary, and the stain used gives the bowl a brilliant sheen. The amber-like accents are a nice touch, too.

The pipe is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve.
