I am a pipe smoker. But I could not find a quality tamper/multi tool I liked at an affordable price so I machined one. Material is H13 tool steel. I vacuum heat treated it to 48HRC with a load of production parts, then Nitrided the surface so it will last forever Attaching a pic of it closed, and open. I have about 4 hours in it, outside of heat treatment, and surface treatment time.
Thank you Sir! A lot of love, and effort went into it even lapped, and polished the pick and face of the Tamper when I got bored.
