Chacom: Champs Elysees (268) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-512-10208
Chacom's roots stretch back to 1879 with the founding of the Comoy's brand by Henri Comoy, who made pipe bowls in Saint-Claude, France, that were then sent to London, England, to be finished by their factory there, all with the help of his cousins of the Chapuis family. Once the London factory was operating autonomously, the Chapuis-Comoy factory began making Chacom pipes, a portmanteau of the Chapuis and Comoy names. Chacom upholds a reputation for fine smoking instruments, reflected in this Champs-Élysées piece. The series is named in honor of Paris' most famous avenue, the Champs-Élysées, and comes complete with a deep, smoky stain that shows off handsome grain. The rim has been left smooth and unstained to show off a striking bit of contrast, with additional smooth briar surrounding a metal band at the base of the stem. The finish here dresses the "268" bent Billiard, making for a look that's stylish in any situation.-John McElheny
