Lots of great tampers out there and some are truly works of art in both craftsmanship and aesthetics.

So post a photo of it and include the manufacturer and why you like it enough to buy it.

This tamper is made by Gabor Laczko at Naked Portafliter. The handle is made from glueing pencils together and turning it on a lathe. I thought the idea was very creative and unique. I've been using mine for nearly six months and love it.

Old baristas never die. They just become over extracted.

Mine are Mahlgut. They just have a great look and feel to them. They look sharp !

Funny, I took a pic of my tampers a few months ago.

Front and centre was the tamper that prompted me taking the picture. Chris Baca used the HKS colours in this Cat&Cloud/Artpresso Dialed v2.0 tamper, and I had to have it. (HKS is a Japanese (car) tuner.) Unfortunately, my hand doesn't fit the tamper ... but HKS colours 8).

Behind that and to your right is my first tamper - a red Reg Barber. It has seen many bases over the years, but currently has Reg's 58.35mm VST flat for use with pump machines.

My daily tamper is Tidaka's 41/58.5 Boardtamper (left-most). The 41mm side is for LM-style single baskets, and the almost two pound weight is perfect for a light lever machine tamp without having to press.

Beautiful. Who made it?

Just a little home-made unit for my Flair bpf --- fits perfect, has a c-flat style face, and is easy to maintain level by feel (pressing down with thumbs on the flat sides over the rim of the portafilter).

That is one fine looking tamper.

Could we get a close up for the HKS tamper? It looks really nice!
