Old Dominion: Chesapeake

Product Number: 002-631-0003

Old Dominion pipes began with a nearly extinct heirloom Indian corn which brothers Bob and Bill Savage, and Laurel, the latter's wife, found to produce a particularly sweet, unique cornmeal. Bringing this breed back from the brink, and finding a healthy demand for it from amateur cooks and professional chefs alike, they also soon found themselves with a lot of large, colorful cobs piling up as well. Turning up archeological evidence that their Pungo Creek Mills farmland had been the site of a clay and cob pipe making operation dating back to the colonial period, an answer as to what to do with all these distinctive corn cobs presented itself.

That answer, of course, was to hand-craft them into sweet-smoking cobs fitted with bamboo cane stems — pipes just like those the planters who'd come before them had enjoyed over two centuries ago.

The Chesapeake is the smallest of its brethren in the Old Dominion line. Perfect for a bit of shag or pure Virginia, its narrow chamber promises a sweet smoke — for those times when a little is all you need.

Note: All measurements listed are approximate, as there will be some variation from individual pipe to individual pipe.
