I am probably no different from many other pipe smokers in having a growing collection of many various types of pipe tampers, either inherited ,given or purchased.It is amazing how quietly they accumulate without any effort .LOL.
In a previous post in the Blog last year, I mentioned that Peterson had issued a new Tamper based on our old friend Sherlock Holmes.It is different from their previous crystal ones in that it is bigger and is made from Pewter.
I was recently given one and must admit I am impressed with it. It is a nice weight and size,it also fits well in my big paws.
As most of my collected pipes are large,I do prefer it to the more fragile prettier crystal previous issue.
