Pipe Tools & Supplies: 8deco Black Leather Double Ended Tamper

Product Number: 001-545-0155

As there are desk lighters, so I would argue are there desk tampers as well: designs that trade off lightness and small size in exchange for more functionality and greater aesthetic presence. This 8deco design is one I would qualify as a "desk" model — it's not exactly short, at over five inches in length, and there's a good amount of (pleasing) heft to it. In exchange for that, you get a more impressive look, and, more importantly, two different styles of tamping ends as well as a 3"-long dottle pick. At the base is 8deco's familiar vented tamper, useful for allowing you to puff and keep things smoldering while tamping; up top, there's the canted style of tamper also found in 8deco's Artist series, ideal for adjusting the glowing ember to keep it centered.

Length 5 1/4"

Product: Pipe Tools & Supplies 8deco Black Leather Double Ended Tamper
I've used this for a couple weeks, now, and really like the feel and function. Here's the scoop, though. Since the head is very large, there are TWO MAJOR issues that you need to be aware of. 1. The greater surface area means a lighter pressure... Read More
