I'll try to figure this photo post thing...should be pretty easy.

If it works you'll see a couple of photos of some of the tampers I've made. All are completely hand made...carved, assembled and/or metal fabricated...all by hand. Yes, I'm crazy.


These are solid copper with an enclosed forged steel tamper.

This lot is Black Bamboo with either a stainless steel or solid brass tamper.

I'm a real softie for Babar.

But that Falcon is impressive, really impressive. Have you used it to tamp a bowl of the same-named GLP blend?

Thanks all. In answer to a question (or two)...I've used the Falcon to tamp down some Maltese Falcon in my Falcon pipe. It's nearly a full circle thing! lol

Really cool work, nice job.

I have kind of been thinking of making some too, but have not yet. Don't plan on getting into selling them though. I do have a really cool idea I think anyway. Since I use one a lot it would make good since to make some if they look awesome and if not, no one will ever see them, LOL!

Just the forged pipe nails alone are cool. Nice work.
