If there is one word that will best describe Comoy's tobacco pipes, it is vintage.
As one of the oldest tobacco pipe companies in existence today, Comoy's lines of pipes have certainly earned their lofty status as quality products worthy of attention and praise.
Founded in 1825 by Francois Comoy and his brothers, this family business first made smoking pipes out of clay and various woods in the town of Saint-Claude, France. It was there, in the eastern mountain town, that briar was first discovered as a viable material for making pipes. This discovery has widely been credited to Francois and his son, Louis.
The use of briar to make tobacco pipes was the change needed to make them more durable and affordable than before. Clay and meerschaum tobacco pipes are more fragile, while boxwood and beech are adequate materials but not as versatile as briar.
Comoy's of London pays tribute to their history and quality through their vintage series of pipes. We provide you with four different shapes of tobacco pipes to select from with the Vintage line, each of them looking great and worthy of your attention.
All of the Comoy's Vintage tobacco pipes are sandblasted with a black finish. The rough texture provides you a look and feel that most people enjoy. The grain of the wood and the different layers are showcased by the sandblasting in ways that smooth pipes don't, creating a pipe that ripples like waves. The blue acrylic stem is another piece that is universal to the Vintage line, providing a stunning contrast to the black stummel. Not only that, but blue is a less common color for stems, meaning these pipes will further stand out for their look.
Certainly worthy of collection, the Comoy's Vintage smoking pipes will be something you can enjoy with your rotation, as well as appreciate while it rests on your pipe stand.
