The owner of The Leaf, a pipe and tobacco shop in Abilene, TX, asked me to turn some pipe tampers out of mesquite. These tampers are buffed to a high gloss and finished with .45 ACP shell casings, which are also buffed.
If you don’t know what pipe tampers are, pipe smokers use them to tamp down the tobacco while they are smoking. Hand-crafted pipe tampers make great gifts and are always enjoyed by pipe smokers. If you would like to purchase a mesquite pipe tamper you can contact me here: email@example.com Price is $25 each.
