Chacom and Slice (Oval)
The Venture Sourcing Team was offered some Chacom branded ‘true seconds’. These pipes (made in St. Claude France), have Chacom marks but are sold as seconds due to minor imperfections usually when the finishes are being applied. These are a great value.
You receive one pipe with a straight stem in the Oval (Billiard with Narrow Bowl). Ovals, are compact in width and fit nicely into pipe rolls and bags. Since the bowl is slightly longer, you still have a full sized bowl.
Ken calls them “Mobys”.
Each pipe comes with a 2oz pack of Byronic Slices flake in the new smaller pouch.
From the lost diary of Captain Ahab: “I was thinking about the whale again and my wooden leg. Then I saw a crewman smoking. I wondered if a whale shaped pipe would sell well? I could give up this senseless hunt. I could be rich. I could eat expensive porridge! … Nah, that idea would never take off. Stupid whale.”
