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 is a North American hardwood that holds a special place in our hearts. Its dense, fine-grain wood not only exudes natural beauty but also provides near-perfect balance and weight for precise tamping.
Each burl handle is a unique piece and ranges in color and complexity.
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.
This listing is for a handle only. Handles and bases must be specified individually to create your complete tamper. We'll assemble it for you before shipping.
This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
