Purpleheart is a hardwood species with a wide range from Central Mexico down to Southern Brazil. This dense, purple-brown wood is prized for use in flooring, furniture, boatbuilding, heavy construction, and specialty items. Its a great, beautiful choice for tampers.
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.
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.
This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
