Topic: New Thor Tamper (6 msgs / 121 lines)
1) From: Andrew Thomas
Got my new tamper today from Les! It is way gorgeous. The handle is Hawaiian koa*, base is Nigerian ebony with a lignum vitae tamping surface. I fired up the espresso machine right away to give it a try. Seems to me the shots even taste a little better. Must be true. Can't be my imagination because I don't have one (so I've been told).
*The koa is a dark honey color that takes on a sort of translucence when polished, giving the illusion that you can actully see into the grain and not just the surface.
Thanks, Les. Excellent work.

Andy,
You forgot to tell them that you supplied the Koa!  Folks, I just don't have
any Koa that is big enough for tampers and it is impossible to get!  I will
continue to look for it, as it does make a nice looking tamper.  I am glad
you are enjoying your tamper!  Thanks for the complement.

Oh man, I'm jealous.  My wife bought me on of Les' Thor Tampers with a
pink ivory handle top.  He does great work and that pink ivory is
beautiful.
