Our Signature handle made Reg famous. The choice of many world barista champions and countless competitors, its ergonomic design fits perfectly in your hand. This helps you find just the right tamping pressure to produce a level, evenly distributed coffee bed.
Eastern maple holds a special place in Reg's heart. Its dense, fine-grain wood not only exudes a natural beauty but also provides the perfect balance and weight for tamping that precious espresso shot.
All our wood handles are artisan-crafted by Reg himself, and finished by hand using Reg's proprietary mixture of food-safe natural finishes. They develop a soft, satin patina with use.
Colors range from a very soft light to a nearly honey color. They're all beautiful and classic.
Please note that this listing is for a handle only. Handles and bases must be specified individually to create a complete tamper. We'll assemble it for you before shipping.
