It’s been raining since yesterday and there’s not much to do outside, so, I did a couple of tampers. I think these are going to be the last of this style.
The large tamper is made from Beech Wood, is approximately 4 inches long and 1/2 – 3/4 inch in diameter. This is a BIG tamper, and feels amazing in the hand. I think this is a tamper for those of you who like Magnum pipes, or, more to my tastes, beautiful vintage Danish Freehands – fill up, light up, tamp a little, and settle back for a good 2-3 hours of sweet smokey heaven. This is the perfect companion for those cherished moments of relaxation and reverie.
The smaller tamper is White Thorn, and is approximately 2 3/4 inches long and 1/4 inch in diameter. This is a very petite tamper, perfect for those of you who want to spend an hour in the company of a favoured flake in a tall, narrow, conical chamber.
Both will age beautifully, colouring from age, oils from your hands, and the smoke from your favoured briar. With careful use and care, they will last you a lifetime, enhancing your enjoyment and accompanying you on journeys into smoke.
