While the original Fischer Prince has been sold, we are more than happy to indulge requests for this style of tamper. Please note that every tamper's grain will have its own unique characteristics, and thus each will be one of a kind. Still in love with this style? Contact us today!

The Fischer Prince Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper has a dignified and comfortable shape of which I am personally quite fond. The particularly tight bird’s eye grain concentrated on one side gives the handle a great deal of subtle character. Two bands, one at the top and one at the bottom, encircle the neck with a stripe winding its way between the bands. The head of this tamp was inspired by the prince pipe shape with its gradually rounded top and slightly conical sides. The overall shape reminded some of us of the pawn chess piece. So we named it after Bobby Fischer, the brilliant grandmaster widely renowned as the greatest chess player in the history of the game. As you search for the perfect espresso, the briar wood Fischer Prince tamper will help you become a grandmaster of your own game.
