    Hi All - I was just sitting around on a rainy Sunday afternoon having a good old smoke of C&D's Dreams of Kadath and while looking across the table I had seen a scrap of briar just kicking around, so I got the dremel out, some sand paper and fabricated a quick rustication tool to make this one up. I made it for a friend of mine that just starting his journey of pipe smoking...I think he will like it, what do you think?

    Triple Threat - Has Plateau at the top of the tamper, then hand rusticated topper ( left natural ) and then a combo of smooth with some left in cuts for the base and did a few different layers of stain.

    I think it looks great! Good idea to leave the tamp side natural, I wonder if it will colour after years of use!

    I have one somewhat similar and love it. You made a really nice one there. Perhaps you should make more and sell them.
