The Midnight Diplomat Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper is a simple and trim tamper that displays eye catching grain. Patterned after the diplomat pipe shape, the dark blue color of the Midnight Diplomat highlights the light colored bird’s eye. It was that bird’s eye grain with dark blue color swirling around it that reminded us of the stars set against a dark background in Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Compare the pictures and I think you will agree that there is a striking resemblance between the grain of the Midnight Diplomat and Van Gogh’s masterpiece. Inspired by that resemblance, we used "midnight" in the name. In addition to the striking patterns, the smooth, unbroken form of the Midnight Diplomat is a joy to hold and will make for myriads of comfortable tamps. The flatter head will be particularly appreciated by those who like to use more force from their palm in the tamp. For these reasons, I am excited to offer the Midnight Diplomat Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper and I think you will enjoy it as much as I do.

The Midnight Diplomat Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made tamper Very comfortable, fits hand well for even tamp. Well made with great fit and finish. The tamper in photos is not the one received. The tamper sent had very little figuring and no birds eye. Would recommend confirming that the tamper in the pictures is the one that will ship or have photos sent of actual tamper.
