When Chacom was looking to make a new line of pipes, managing director Antoine Grenard felt that paying homage to their home country of France was the perfect idea. The classic shapes and designs take their style from the original styles made in the company's origins.
Chacom, being one of the oldest smoking pipe companies currently active, has a rich history to draw back on for their designs and they do not disappoint with this line of pipes. With members of the Comoy family making and selling smoking pipes for nearly 200 years, you know they have a great understanding of what is needed to make a good tobacco pipe.
Still in the family, Antoine is the son of Yves Grenard, who was a cousin of Pierre Comoy, the great-grandson of the founder of the Comoy name.
You can find thirteen different shapes for The French Pipe, each numbered to showcase each style helpfully. With each shape comes two different finishes; one a rich, smooth brown, and the other a sandblasted ebony black.
That's essentially 26 different pipes in this set, enough to have a great rotation of fine tobacco pipes from France.
This variety also is perfect for collectors, who will be able to showcase the variety of different pipes and not have to worry about repeats. You will be able to smoke a different one each day and be able to last more than three weeks without smoking from the same pipe a second time.
With each pipe you purchase, you will get a kit that includes many of the things you need to enjoy smoking your new pipe properly.
Reasonably priced and made by one of the foremost pipe making companies in the world, getting something from The French Pipes line is one of the best decisions you can make.
