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.
Padauk, with its rich, reddish hue and exceptional durability, brings another touch of elegance and craftsmanship to your coffee station. Not only does its reassuring density and ergonomic grip feel great in the hand, it helps ensure a consistent and even tamp, which is essential for pulling the perfect 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 start out a bit glossy but develop a soft, satin patina with use.
Please note that this listing is for a handle only. Handles and bases must be specified individually to complete a complete tamper. We'll assemble it for you before shipping.
