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.

Chacom’s Trekking line is long discontinued. I’m not sure the inspiration for the pipe, but it is relatively lightweight and not too long, so perhaps it was made with the great outdoors in mind. In any case, it’s a lovely design; it’s a classic straight apple, or short brandy, shape, with a dark brown stain that still allows a good amount of the briar’s natural patterns to come through. It also has a decorative ring – horn perhaps, though I can’t be sure – and a simple black stem. The design is quite similar to a ‘dress’ pipe, such as those made by Dunhill, so one could say is a pipe for all occasions, really.

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. The pipe is chambered for 9mm filters, but also comes with a Chacom adapter for non-filtered use, if one prefers.
