    Found a pipe tamper on eBay I’ve been using since July. It’s listed as a 8Deco. The length 3-1/2”, tamper diameter is 5/8”, barrel diameter 3/16”. The clean out spoon is rounded & smoothed, poker rounded on the end. The holes on the tamper end aid in keeping the coals afire. Here’s the pics.

    I've this one: 8Deco tamper

    It's an OK tamper, but I've yet to see the ember not being put out due to the holes. Then again, my tamping technique is primitive at best.

    Looks like smoking pipes.com carries them as well.

    I got the bamboo 8Deco tamper a year or so ago, and it's my favorite tamper now. Worth every penny of the $10 it cost.

    I use an 8deco Penner Tamper which looks like a fountain pen. The tamper is enclosed after each use, as well as the pick. Sure keeps the table clean. No ash drops off onto the table or for that matter, into my shirt pocket.

    These have been mentioned on the radio show numerous times by Brian. People really seem to like the 8deco products.

    I have several of their tampers. They work great in all but the narrowest bowls and are very affordable. The acrylic swirl ones can be striking.

    I have a redwood handled one that is really pretty, and a bamboo one. I really like the way they tamp, and haven't had issues with them putting an ember out. They are a little big to get down in some of my conical bowls, particularly on a Savinelli 310, so I have to remember that before I start ramming it down and wondering why there is so much resistance...
