At the fair in Dortmund I bought some great pipe tools, those arrived today. Those are special because the tools are not factory made. All tools are created or designed by freehand pipe makers, like Tsuge, L'Anatra and Nording. The tools and tampers were made from bamboo, briar and horn. Real collectables! i always love these, because you don't see them every day.
The Tsuge pipe tool and tamper is made of Japanese bamboo.
This is one of L'Anatra's pipe tampers, beautiful smooth briar.
I will be adding more nice pipetools the next few days.
