Comoy’s Pipes Francois Comoy and his brothers started making clay, boxwood and beech pipes in 1825 in the small monastic town of Saint-Claude in eastern France. Claude and his son Louis discovered that briar had vastly superior qualities and from 1848 made pipes only in this wood. In 1879 Francois’s son Henri, who was born in 1850, moved to London with a small bag of tools, but a great deal of experience. Henri set up a small factory in Seven Dials which is today known as Cambridge Circus. He was one of the prime movers in the establishment of the briar pipe trade in London and is credited with being the author of the appellation “London Made”.
Comoy’s Tawny Saddle The Comoy's Tawny Saddle are a stunning range of classic shaped pipes from Comoy's with a rich brown stain and high gloss lacquer finished with a tortoiseshell style Cumberland stem. The 4278 is a classic bent Billiard with a saddle stem. Each pipe comes with a metal stinger which can be removed for those who prefer an unfiltered smoke.
