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.

You won’t find the Chacom Safari on sale anymore, as it was a line sold by Chapuis-Comoy many years ago. It’s a shame to be honest, as this pipe is fantastic. The design is so distinct, being a synthesis of the traditional brandy and Rhodesian shapes, and featuring a flared, shank ring of what appears to be boxwood, or something similar. The grain is nice and fiery, the stain has a dazzling luster to it, and the pipe feels really good in the hand.

Remarkably, this Chacom is also completely unsmoked, with an original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve.
