Chacom Pipes (St Claude)
Chacom is a family owned company who can trace their pipe making heritage to 1825 before Briar was even discovered. They are based in St Claude which is widely recognised as the pipe making capital of the world.
They are one of very few pipe manufacturers who make pipes from start to finish. From ageing the Briar right through to hand finishing.
Chacom Grand Cru Freehand Pipes
Chacom are not widely known for their freehand pipes but quite predictably for a company of it’s heritage and experience it is something they excel at.
Every now and then the pipe graders come across an exceptional block of Briar and feel that it should be made into something much more special than the general shape range that makes up 95% of their production. So on special days the carvers are given free reign to let their creative juices loose!
The Grand Cru was first introduced in 1978 by Pierre Morel senior who at the time was an independant free hand pipe maker, About 10 years later he joined Chacom full time and then retired
in 2009 but continued to make pipes like this amazing piece. The light brown stain perfectly accentuates the grain running up the bowl which has been sandblasted to bring out the stunning grain pattern. It has been finished with a horn ferrule with cumberland style acrylic stem with a nickel chacom badge.
