Comoy pipes are beautifully made and excellent smokers. People who smoke both Dunhill and Comoy pipes have remarked that the Comoy's quality is as good as the Dunhill's and that they smoke every bit as well, the only difference being the name.

Comoy pipes started in 1825 in the small town of Saint-Claude in France by Francois Comoy and his brothers. They initially started in clay and beech, but later on discovered briar had greatly superior qualities, so from 1848 only made pipes in briar. In 1879 the business was expanded to England. Francois’s son Henri moved their with a small bag of tools and a huge amount of experience and set up a small factory in London. He was actually one of the main players in establishing a briar pipe trade in London.

Henri was initially helped by some of his brothers, then in 1891 he was joined by his Louis and Charles Chapuis, two of his nephews. Due to the increase in the level of business, by 1895 a new factory was built. Business kept on improving and by 1905 they were moving into the market in America, meaning increased business, requiring yet another new factory being built by 1913.

A difficult period for Comoys came about during the Second World War as the whole of Great British industry was turned over to armaments production and the war effort. As a result, pipe manufacturing stopped, all except for a small workshop. When the war ended in 1945, all British companies faced an uphill battle to once again become established. It was not until they opened a new purpose built factory in Aldershot in 1950 that Comoy pipes production nearly met demand.
