    I recently sent Old Ted some briar blocks so he could make some of his fancy tampers. All I asked for in exchange was a finished tamper. Yesterday I got home and found a package on my doorstep a little bigger than the average tamper. Opened it up, and along with a beautiful acrylic and brass tamper, was an OT pipe; both absolutely beautiful, and a classy act from one of Yorkshire's finest.

    This thread is a little embarrassing.....David (buistd) has made me a couple of kind offers in the past, and I know from threads here - of his generous and helpful nature, the small blocks he kindly sent me originated in Greece, and along with shipping charges do not come cheap - even domestic postage charges in UK have reached an incredible high recently, therefore one of my humble tampers would have been small recompense!....thanks David! :th1:

    This is all fiction as far as I am concerned. At least until we get a pic!
