    English Blends More Expensive Than Aros?

    Wild Skull Tamper!

    Hi, Well I found this really cool tamper at SP. It's made in the Ukraine and features a beechwood body, a metal foot, and a weathered skull fashioned from white hornbeam wood, with a metal spear piercing through it. Only $180! I think it's really cool looking and appears very well made, but...

    Anyone Else Prefer Wooden Matches Over A Lighter.

    Thanks you for your replies. I offered $200 and the seller didn't' bite. I don't feel comfortable going over that. Seller considers it a museum piece. Oh well.
