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.

As far as I can tell, Chacom hasn’t sold the Richmond line for a few years at the very least. It’s always nice to come across discontinued makes and models, especially ones as pleasant as this one. There’s a great shine to the bowl, with its swirling mixture of bird’s-eye and flame grain on the bowl, emphasized by a fiery contrasting stain. The amber-like shank and stem accent add a distinct touch to the design, too.

The pipe is completely unsmoked and comes with its own box and sock, which is a remarkable achievement for a discontinued line like this one. The bowl coating is factory-original, which should help ease in its first smokes.
