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.

For those that don’t know, Chacom has a long history of partnering with outside designers to produce their more unique lines of pipes, from Denmark’s Tom Eltang to France’s own Pierre Morel Jr. The Volute line, to which this pipe belongs, was Chacom’s first partnership with an outside designer, Claude Robin, in 1996. This Volute is Robin’s interpretation of the cobra shape, with a snaking curvature flowing from button to rim. It’s also one of the first examples I’ve seen of the Volute in a sandblasted finish, which works well with the shape’s reptilian design theme.

This Volute is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original special presentation box.
