a simple tamper - steel and wood, nothing much more to it really (unless you count the clearcoat lacquer). but look again... the stainless steel piston is manufactured here in scotland by machinists who normally produce precision parts for the oil, gas and scientific research industries. the handle is natural beech, a plentiful and renewable UK hardwood which is ideal for kitchen tool: ours is sourced and turned in the UK (mostly by bearded men in sheds).

Having purchased a second hand La Pavoni Professional I was using a flimsy plastic tamper that came with the machine. After much struggle with this device I finally had good results but couldn't stand the hassle of using that tacky piece of crap everyday. Finally I decided to get a good quality tamper.
After looking at most of what was on the market I thought there was no way I could get a well made unit with wooden handle for under 50 bucks... until I found the Knock Espresso Tamper.
The flavour profile of my shots has really changed with this thing, for the good. It is so easy to get a perfect tamp with this unit, and it looks great on my counter when not in use.
The build quality is very good and the results are even better.
Overall a great investment for my espresso setup.
I figure if you're going to go to so much fuss to make splendid coffee, you might as well make all the bits and pieces a pleasure to use. Should last a very long time, as it is obviously very well crafted.
