Description

This Chacom is a reverse calabash tobacco pipe with a rounded bent shape, a brown sandblasted finish and an acrylic mouthpiece. This briar pipe is fitted with the so-called ‘Reverse Calabash System’; in other words, it has an additional chamber to swirl the smoke. The ‘Reverse’ chamber is much larger than in other system pipes and generates a cooler, drier smoke by collecting excess moisture. Comes in a Chacom cardboard gift box with an illustrated cotton pipe bag.

About Chacom Pipes

In 1825, well before the discovery of briar wood, the Comoy family manufactured pipes in the small village of Avignon, near Saint-Claude, France, mostly in boxwood for the “Grumblers” of the Army of Napoleon. By 1856, Henri Comoy had discovered briar and particularly the special treatment it required for the making of pipes. Saint-Claude became the birthplace of briar pipe manufacturing and the world capital of pipe-making.

After the First World War, Henri partnered with his cousins and a new firm was registered called Chapuis Comoy & Cie. To develop the Saint-Claude factory, the brand Chacom was created, using the first three letters of the Chapuis and Comoy families. By the end of the second world war, Chacom became the principal tobacco pipe brand in France and Belgium.

After more than a century in the Faubourg Marcel, the pipemaker’s area in Saint-Claude, the company Chapuis Comoy & Cie left its old mythical factory and moved a few kilometers away, to Villard-Saint-Sauveur, into a new building perfectly adapted for pipe production. Besides production, this new location allowed the opening of a factory store and a museum exhibition, allowing Chacom to mix tradition and modernity in a manner that pays tribute to the past.

Today, under the leadership of Antoine Grenard, Chacom pipes are sold globally. In 2013 Chapuis-Comoy & Cie obtained the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label, a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial know-how.
