Genod: Smooth Bright Mounted Billiard with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-628-2085
Genod pipes are fashioned at the historic Comoy factory in Saint-Claude, France. The factory is among the oldest in the world and one of the first to craft pipes from briar, fashioning such pipes as Chacom and Ropp alongside Genod. The Genod brand was established in 1970 by factory owner Jacques Craen in honor of the former proprietor George Vincent-Genod, and today, the workshop is supervised by French pipe maker Sebastien Beaud. A pipe maker since the early 2000s, Beaud curates classic French pipe design through Genod's range of classic shapes and finishes, offering timeless pipes from petite French standards to extra-large pieces. This particular bent Billiard is presented in the smooth finish and rich auburn stain of the Bright series, and it's fitted to a stem of genuine horn, hearkening to antique French pipes from the late 19th century and early 20th century. Moreover, it's elevated by a metal mount along the shank end: Combined with the stem's tapered base, it lends the appearance of a military mount but houses a standard mortise-and-tenon arrangement, with the tenon integrated with a stinger to further the vintage motif.-Truett Smith
