Comoy’s Grand Slam Extraordinare 125, Large Smooth Pot Estate Briar Pipe


Out of stock


Comoy’s is a historic brand in pipe making, and possibly the most historic brand in the making of briar pipes. Though originally founded in 1825 by a French family from Saint Claude, France, production of Comoy’s pipes was soon moved to London, England, where it established itself as one of the quintessential English pipe companies.

The Grand Slam is not only one of Comoy’s most famous series, but a series that is among the most famed of any British pipes. Named for its patented stinger system, the Grand Slam is coveted by collectors and admirers of classic smoking instruments from that 20th century powerhouse of pipe-making. This Grand Slam happens to be a little different than others, however, in that it is not only a Grand Slam, but a Grand Slam Extraordinaire. Extraordinaire was a designation Comoy’s applied to several of their lines whenever one of its pipes was, simply put, extraordinary. Typically this meant a pipe was larger or was made of superior briar, with particularly beautiful grain patterns. This one appears to be both, being a rather large pot of over 6 inches in length, and having eye-catching bird’s-eye and flame grain around its bowl.

The condition is very good. Judging from the nomenclature and the three-part C inlaid in its stem, this pipe was produced prior to the merger of Comoy’s with Cadogan Investments in 1980. It has some rim darkening, but it has nonetheless been preserved quite remarkably, keeping its signature stinger and even retaining the original leather washer at the stinger’s end.
