A big pipe calls for a big tamper, and to that end we have this heavy-duty 8deco "Penner." Featuring a black acrylic fuselage with steel hardware and internals, it offers a vented tamper foot as well as an extra-long dottle scraper.
I held off on getting this tool as to build my cellar and pipe collection (until the next episode of PAD strikes) however, after buying two 8deco tampers, I think it made it worse because I knew that it would be quality and innovative. The tamper foo... Read Moret designs had me hooked and 12 beans? C'mon man, you just can't beat that with a stick. So I sprung for the E ticket ride with nostalgia in mind as my Grandfather had a similar model and going old school with the spread load, roll up pouch method as much of The Greatest Generation did. A tamper that stayed put and fit nicely next to my pen, pencil or whatever else fit the bill nicely. This is a quality build, there is even an O ring to keep the dottle scraper tight and the heft is surprising and welcome. This tamper is the size of a medium to large fountain pen.I would be curious to know what the crush/impact rating of the acrylic used as, if push came to shove, quite literally, this tamper could be used in the same manner as any tactical pen for hand to hand combat(blunt strike surface,no point/edge) In short, next time this is back in stock, get one! There is a reason they keep selling out. Read Less
I could not be happier with this pipe tool. It has a nice weight to it for tamping, excellent dottle scraper, sturdy and functional design. I also like that all the parts witch come in contact with ash can be sealed away to keep my pockets clean.
