Genod brand is in fact a separate and very old branch of the French Comoy’s tradition remained in St Claude while the company was migrated, sold to a new owner, merged. The oldest French Comoy’s workshop was named Comoy-David and only in the 1970s it was renamed to Genod. Another interesting detail is the name of this pipe. Wikipedia says Lajoux is a commune in the Jura department in Franche-Comté in eastern France with the population of 253 residents. That’s a great example how French pipe makers can respect and appreciate even a small town!
