Last year's Chacom Pipe of the Year was a smooth, soft bent Egg shape. This year, it is, as you can see, something completely different. Well okay, it's lines are smooth, but otherwise this is everything last year's shape was not; swift, flourishing, and wild. Of course, as a pipe of the year, Chacom did still carry over a sterling silver band and rich cumberland stem.
