Sporting Art Deco styling and sound functionality, these 8deco "Classic" tampers are a slim, practical, affordable option. The flat, vented foot and slender fuselage makes it easy to angle the tamper and keep your tobacco burn centered. Plus, they come in a wide variety of different color/material options.
Here it's offered with matte-gold colored metal fuselage, diamond-patterned, and accented up top and at the foot in bright brass.
I continue to love this tamper style by 8deco. This is the third in their range I have purchased. The foot is the same size and style as the bamboo tamper and the pick is very similar to the desk tamper. This is my favorite of the lot. ~J

The idea of THIS tamp is its large,... Read More concave, open perforated face that allows you to tamp the crown completely, easily and uniformly without snuffing out any portion of the crown. To me, this is the perfect pipe tamp and I highly recommend purchasing one for yourself. Read Less
Stepped out of the box and bought this tamper because I thought it looked functional--boy was I right. While it is quite a bit larger than I expected, it has a great weight and feel in the hand. Stop buying Czech tools and pick up one of these.
I smoke about 10 bowls a day, and I am neurotic about tamping. I've just given up on high-end tampers and generally use a pipe nail, or a Czech tool on my keychain.
But this tamper...
Not only does it match the Dunhill Gold Barley pattern (my favori... Read Morete), not only is it huge--both the handle and the tamping surface--not only is it perforated, making it easy to keep your ember lit...the tamping surface is also DOMED so that your tamp is absolutely perfect. Tobacco is not espresso--it needs to have a dome shape in the bowl to prevent coning. Whoever designed this tamper was a frequent smoker who knew exactly what he or she was doing. I will only buy 8deco tampers from now on. Read Less
