Fits well in my hand and has a comfortable weight and feel to it. Just got into espresso and using this tamper as opposed to the one I had been given made an immediate difference.
Negative Product Points
This tamper is not only beautiful to look at, but it is comfortable in my hand and does a great job. I pull it out with pride whenever brewing for friends, it looks legit to say the least. Itís smooth and while a friend of mine complains that itís a bit heavy, I find it the perfect weight to work with. As far as I can tell, this is one of the best value tampers out there. I read a lot of reviews before buying and have heard nothing negative about this tamper. I was more than willing to spend the $35 to improve my espresso this much.
1st-line Equipment shipped the tamper promptly and it came double wrapped in bubble wrap inside of a box which was then packed with packing peanuts inside of a larger box, and it cost me nothing extra!
