This is a good tamper, that works just about perfectly with my Rancilio Silvia. It feels great in my hand, is nicely weighted, not too heavy, or too light. It's actually a 3-piece tamper: the bottom, which appears to be cast stainless, a black plastic ring near the bottom and an acrylic handle that simply screws on. When you remove the acrylic handle, it becomes apparent that it's NOT a stainless ball on the top (it's too light for that), but rather some plating on the acrylic that looks like stainless. I love the feel, and how it works, and use it in preference to the plastic thing that came with my Silvia. I did, however, make a new top part for it, to screw on in place of the acrylic. I turned a piece of Spalted Maple, and now have an absolutely unique tamper. It works like a dream, and is pretty and different.

The weight and hand-feel are wonderful!
This tamper feels great in my hand, very heavy, looks great. For 25 dollars you would be hard to beat it. It is way heavier and better built than I thought it would be. I would order again. I got mine in the clear and it looks great. It arrived quickly, and was packaged quite well with a bunch of other toys!.

Would like to see it in a flat base, but convex seems to work fine.
