Pipe Tools & Supplies: 8deco Bamboo Tamper

Product Number: 001-545-0104

Light, simple, inexpensive, functional, and offering an artful look as well, these 8deco bamboo tampers are a bargain. Like many of 8deco's tampers, the "foot" features a ventilated design, allowing you to effectively puff and tamp at the same time - quite useful when coaxing a smoke back from the brink of sputtering out.

Tamp ‘dat ash!!

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
The design of the foot on this is quite perfect. Holes allow you to draw while tamping, and the concave shape keeps your ember perfectly shaped for a great burn. The edges are thin and just sharp enough to gently scrape the sides of the bowl. Lightwe... Read More

I love this tamper. Mostly used for my around the homestead smoking. I love the holes in the tamper that allow for airflow while tamping. The bamboo is a good length with the end shaped to a pick.
Elegant!!

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
In its simplicity, this is a very functional and uncomplicated tool. I love the length of it because it makes it easier to hold and to pick up off the table. The brass, tamper portion is concave and vented, so you can put a perfect mound on top of ... Read More

I have several different tampers but this one is my favorite. At 5 inches and made of bamboo and brass, it feels nice in hand. The tamper head is half inch diameter with small holes. Works very well. Its getting a nice patina from all the rubbing I g... Read More

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
I’ve spent a lot on pipes and paraphernalia. Cost doesn’t scare me and I believe that good work deserves a reward. But much to my amazement the best tamper is by far the cheapest. I keep them all around the house, let the cat play with them, even gr... Read More

My favorite tamper—durable, light, handsome, and inexpensive. I wager it would be a great tool for delicate pipes, like Meerschaums.

What to say about this little guy except that it is always the tamper I reach for first. It's cheap... but it really does an incredible job doming the tobacco and ash for a great burn. The bamboo is sturdy and the cut end scrapes wonderfully, doing... Read More
Best Tamper for the Money Bar None
January 05, 2017
Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
A raw slice of bamboo is the body of this tamper. The one reviewer below who seems to be bothered by this may complain, but I feel that it is an odd note to say the least. It is rustic yet looks very fine. The domed, ventilated, machined-brass foot ... Read More
Disappointed
September 20, 2016
Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
I must say I was disappointed with this tamper. I realize it is an inexpensive item, but the edges of the bamboo were extremely sharp, making the tamper unpleasant to hold and use without risking a cut. Perhaps I just received a bad example, as most... Read More

Just as all the other reviews said, the quality and aesthetic of this tamper outweighs the price tenfold. Favorite tamper.
Perfect Meerschaum tool
May 25, 2016
Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
These are perfect for my prized meerschaums. The bamboo doesn't scratch the delicate chamber, and as to the bamboo staining, like meerschaum, it only adds to the patina. As stated by Evan G., the shape prevents them from rolling. I like these so much... Read More
Perfect Tamper
May 20, 2016
Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
This bamboo tamper comes at unbeatable value, and has lasted over a year. In addition, it doesn't put out your ember when smoking and helps dome the tobacco, all while easily fitting inside most bowls.
Great tamper.

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
This is the best tamper in the price range available. Domes the tobacco instead of flattening it, fits any pipe bowl, well made and attractive and cheap.
Excellent tamper

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
Very nice foot on it that is concave so tat it pushes the side down more than the center so you're ember is not smashed and is made of a hearty brass. An excellent value!
Amazing Tamper

This is my first tamper without the other tools connected on it. I love the little holes on it which lets me puff while tamping preventing the pipe from getting extinguished. I find myself holding my pipe in one hand and the tamper in the other. T... Read More

Love this tamper. I bought one of these after using an 8deco one from the Little River B&M store. I really like the air holes that allow you to puff and tamp at the same time so you do not snuff out your pipe. The bamboo is smooth and I like the ... Read More

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
This is a great little tamper. I reach for it in preference to others I have because it feels nice in the hang. Good size and weight as mentioned by Barry K. I've just ordered a few more to leave them lying around the place.
Excellent Tamper!

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Bamboo Tamper
The 8deco Bamboo Tamper is both stylish and utilitarian. The bamboo shaft feels good to the touch. This bamboo tamper is larger and heavier than it looks in the picture, and in a very good way.
