I bought about 3 pipe lighters a few months ago that have tampers built in to them. They are generally pretty handy as all the rest of my nails and czech tools tend to hide from me for some reason. so far i've not managed to loose any of the lighters and can usually find one when I need it.

I have always used one of the "three in one" cheap tamper, but recently changed to just using the tamper that forms part of my Ronson lighter. It is the same as the one that forms part of the Old Boy. Much lighter, and easier to use really.

I use the built in one in my lighter, I find it handy as when removed I use the spike end to give the bowl a stir sometimes.

:shock: That's much too vulgar display of tamping power, this is the tamper of the guy with the $15,000 solid Iridium safety razor with $800 replacement cartridge (no joke)

Some people and their money! :lol: Makes me wish I could make brilliant items made of platinum just for that guy.

Gotta love capitalism. Or hate it because of stuff like this. :lol:

Hey, just think, his loss really will be the gain of another! Follow the guy to every smoking area in town. :lol:

Insane, tasteless, and vulgar bling. No other tamper says I am an asshole better than that one IMHO. Makes you wonder what size the gold chain around his neck and what ridiculous carat the bracelet on his wrist is....

Guess it's a must have for any gangsta Gettin down in da hood!

it's silly...it's basically a $2000 tool to replace your finger. it's like having a solid gold tiffany nose picker.

On the other hand, it would be a nice gift to give to a pipe-smoking partner retiring from a law firm or something along those lines. A relative of mine was given an antique white gold Montegrappa pen (beaucoup $) as a thank you for some business thing. as an important gift, I can see it.
