I am looking for a leveling tamper

Can someone recommend a "leveling tamper" like LevTamp (https://www.kafatek.com/index.php/levta ... so-tamper/), but not so expensive?

Thank you!

The Decent Espresso v2 tamper is 30% cheaper.

Do you know how well they fit in a VST Basket?

. +1. And, 50% cheaper if you get the scratch version which most have said is basically new.
Don't think there should be any issue with VST, but shoot Decent a message to confirm.

€ 54 | espresso calibrated coffee tamper with steady pressure anti pressure deviation design Adjustable depth design 58.35mm


€ 54 | 304 Stainless Steel Coffee Tamper 58MM Maracoon Coffee Distributor Coffee Powder Hammer Customized Coffee Accessories

These are the cheapest I could find.

I was doubting between 58.35mm and 58.5mm push type tamper, ended up buying 58.5mm wedge type levelling tool and 58.5mm push tamper. I would probably buy the tamper if they had 58.5 58.55 or 58.6mm.

Perfectly. I use it with 15g & 18g VST baskets.

I picked up the DecentEspresso V2 tamp and is a great'edition and does just what it is supposed to. Picked up the "scratched" version for an added discount and not a thing wrong with it as far as I could tell. Have bought a few things from DecentEspresso over the last year - all quality products.

Where can I get the "scratched" version? I can't find them.
