When we decided to bring in the Chacom Ariane line of pipes, we thought we were getting standard Chacom pipes for a great price. But, when we received these pipes and got to examine them we realized how special the Ariane line is. It was discontinued years ago and it has been forgotten by fans of Chacom pipes. These pipes are obviously made from decades-old briar and each pipe is lightweight and dense with beautiful grain. These pipes are going provide a dry, cool smoke and patina the more they are smoked. This is a very special line of pipes.
