Chacom Trekking 263 Smooth Straight Apple Estate Briar Pipe Unsmoked, 9mm / Adapter

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.

I haven’t seen a Chacom Trekking in years. They’ve long been out of production, but this one happened upon my desk recently, and unsmoked too. It’s a lovely straight apple, with a brown-sugar stain that reminds me a little of the Danish golden contrast stain perfected by artisans such as Tom Eltang. It’s a simple design, but has what appears to be a briar ring collaring the shank, which is a nice extra touch.

As mentioned, the pipe is completely unsmoked. It is chambered for 9mm filters, but comes with its original adapter for non-filtered smoking. It also comes with its original box and sleeve.
