This pipe tamper was turned by hand in our woodshop and is made of Indian rosewood capped with a brass pistol cartridge to provide a fireproof tamping service. The wood shows the typical rich color and dark grain of rosewood and is complimented nicely by the shiny brass.

The cartridge is a spent Winchester 9 mm Luger cartridge that we recycled from the shooting range, thoroughly cleaned, and tumbled with steel shot to obtain an ultra shiny finish as pictured.

This piece was cut, turned, and sanded to 12,000 grit. Then we sealed it with a proprietary mixture of boiled linseed oil and varnish which penetrates and hardens the wood, then we topped it with several coats of high gloss carnauba wax to give the wood a high shine, natural shimmer, and a hard, protective finish.

I am a pipe smoker and absolutely love this tamper. I made a protoype from scrap that I still use on every bowl I smoke, and have turned several since then and have been very happy with the results.

Pipe nails and czech tools are very functional and an absolute must for every pipe smoker, but when you are getting ready to load up that gorgeous pipe that you hand-selected for the beautiful wood grain why not complete the experience with an equally beautiful, one-of-a-kind pipe tamper? The combination of wood and brass is truly elegant and perfect for the discriminating pipe smoker.

Buy this as a treat for yourself or get it as that perfect gift for father's day, birthday, or just as a gift for that special pipe smoker in your life.
