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.

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. Mr Robin has here supplied Chacom with a wonderfully original cobra shape, which is dressed in Chacom’s high-grade, light blonde finish. The stain does an excellent job of bringing out the straight grain and bird’s-eyes inherent to the briar, and complements the jet black shank and stem perfectly.

The pipe is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating for easing in the pipe’s first smokes. It also comes with its original presentation box and sleeve.
