This is a classic tool and is perfect for general bowl tending. Light, easy to carry and well made. All pipe owners should have one of these tools!
Easy to lose and I always like to have a spare.
A nice little tamper for convenience. My choice of a solid piece is to avoid removing lit tobacco from the bowl when lifting up from the tamping.
Light, well made, smooth, and is my go-to tool.
They fit everywhere and since they are not expensive you can have a bunch of them and place one in the car one in the garage one in the Porsche. Etc. So you can have one right where you need it.
