Horseshoe Nails

The horseshoe-style pipe nail has a couple of distinct advantages over the standard model. First, it's a bit heavier, which allows you to use the weight of the nail to tamp, without having to apply pressure, which can make for a harder draw. They also have a slimmer "spoon", which will make it easier to get at stubborn scraps in the chamber and also to get down into the tobacco, if you need to loosen things up.

Love It
I put this next to my Chech tool on my desk to see which one I'd reach for. Guess which one wins 99 percent of the time. And every morning I check my pocket to make sure I have a nail. The Chech tool is good until the hinge goes lose. After the hinge goes they drive me nuts. I have a pile of them to prove it. The nail does the job every time.

Sturdy and effective.
I keep them everywhere. In my car, on the porch, in the ashtray, in my pouch, everywhere I might need one.

Nice Little Tamper
Perfect for what it is. Cheap enough to buy multiples and have them around where and when I need them, and I don't have to worry about misplacing them.

Slim and effective
For me, the Silver Horseshoe Nail is second only to the Penny nail design. I love it because it slides into my pipe roll without having to nudge something else out of a slot. My penny nail stays in my pocket.

Quite nice
I've purchased two and will be getting more. Easy tool to use (no hinge) and a conversation piece. Plan on taking one and polishing it up nice and engraving my initials on the head. Could be a 1/4" longer for my Churchwarden.

Smaller then a chezch tool
It's good if you want to have the most minimal tool you can get away with, without compromising the usefulness.

Well made
This is a nifty tool. Not only will it help you tend your pipe. It is also inexpensive and a classic look. I gave a few to my dad as well. As they are the perfect pocket tool for a pipe smoker.

It does the job
Aside from the mold seam and cheap feel, this tamper performs its duties well. The only problem I ran into was that I bent it while scooping ash out of my Grabow Lark with it.

Silver Horseshoe pipe tamp
I’m so glad you sell these. I love them, they are my favorite tamps. Convenient, simple, just wonderful for small pipes as well as regular or large. Thank you so very much

It works I suppose
I mean, it's functional if you're gentle with it. It lacks quality, build integrity and over-all is a bit disappointing. But it does technically function as intended. It has very obvious mold marks, the metal is incredibly soft, and it lacks the versatility that the flip-out tools have. But ultimately it works, and that's really all it needs to do.

Build your own Christmas kit
Great deal on a great pipe!! The selection they had was very good on the pipes, and there were plenty of tobaccos to choose from! The cleaners that came with it are really good quality as well. I have told multiple friends about this kit, and would suggest it to anyone looking to get another pipe or someone looking to get into pipe smoking.

The Silver (Not Really) Horseshoe Nail
“It does its job pretty well, feels kinda cheap in appearance, but for the price I can't fault it for that. It's a great option if you like the look. The square tamp does look aesthetically pleasing, though the edges make it feel slightly awkward against the round bowl of a pipe. I would recommend this if you want the convenience of a nice cheap and efficient tool, with no frills, after all, there's no parts to break, no hinges to bother with, a pipe tamp as simple as they come, and it's pretty great in that respect.

Almost perfect
Very good, almost great. If they were only round headed. Some of my small bore pipes object to the square head. These are cheap and expendable without breaking the bank.

Simple
This is a simple little thing. It works well as a tamper and scraper, but isn't very strong. I used it to pry open a tin and bent it. It was easy to bend back, so it wasn't really damaged. It would be much better if it were steel instead of aluminum,to give it some strength, but it is what it is.

Perfect
Received this free for Customer Appreciation Week 2017. I have to say it is my favorite tamper. Most of the options on a Czech tool I only use after I am done smoking and they are completely needed then. This opens a tin, tamps, loosens ash etc. Perfect weight unlike a heavy Czech tool (IMO). If carried it won't stab you potentially like a Czech or a golf tee. All these items have their advantages but for me, hands down and for the cost, this is all I need. Would be awesome if a option was solid silver!

Basically perfect
Nice little tool to keep in my pocket with my wallet. Easy to use when I'm out and about and will definitely take this when backpacking. Tamps fine and the narrow end has a bit of a spoon to it making it great for emptying the pipe or loosening things up a bit. Only two gripes: I wish it was a bit heavier, and aesthetically I don't like the casting seam. But these are basically inconsequential.

Fantastic tamper
I love the weight of this tamper. If I hold it a centimeter or so above the tobacco and let it fall, the weight of the nail flattens out the ash for me and I don't have to push at all. This keeps me from applying too much pressure, which can hamper my smoke.

I enjoy the horse nail pipe tamper it works great, and it has a nice look. I recommend it.

Excellent!
Love using a nail instead of a pipe tool that I have to fumble with to get open. This is not a flimsy piece, it is good quality

Great pipe tamper!
Greetings!! I found this tool to be quite useful. I used it the first time with my pipe and found it is great. It is a little on the cheaper end of the spectrum than I was expecting (was expecting something a little heavier) but for the price, you can't beat it. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a nice pipe tamper at a reasonable price.

Basic but it works
It works. It's an interesting shape compared to others. It's cheap (in price not quality) and that's good for someone like me who misplaces tampers almost as quick as I buy them.

A little lite in weight but it gets the job done. I like the small paddle at the tip.

Not bad for what it is - light & simple but I much prefer the Tsuge Bamboo Tamper.

Does the job
Not much to talk about here. It has a small and thin 'spoon' which is preferred for scraping and getting into corners and whatnot.

Does what it supposed to do
If you're looking for a glamorous tamp to show off this isn't it. If you want one that works, is light, sized right and cheap to replace this is it.

Horseshoe Pipe Nail
A must have tool! And for only a couple dollars! Does the job as well or better than the one I spent three times as much for.

Looks good, Works great
I order the Horseshoe Nail pipe tool because I got tired of carrying around my heavier pipe tool in my pocket and wanted something lightweight and simple to use. This item does the job and is so lightweight I forget I have it in my pocket at times. Affordable and does the job.

Handy Tool
I got this for my husband as a Christmas present and he really likes this tool for either packing and cleaning out the bowl. It is a great alternative to carrying around the regular multi tool.

Just right for my needs.

Does as intended
Much lighter than expected, but does the job fine. Tamps the tobacco like a champ and the spoon gets right down in there. It wont make you dinner, but at this price who could expect it to. :)

Love using it better than the Chech tool. Love the spoon end but the tamper end should have been rounder.
Customer Testimonials
Decent little piece for the price. Sanded the base and tip of the cleaner to remove the mold bits.
MM of Brownville, NY
Not for me... Got one of these in a sampler and ended up throwing it away. I agree with the other reviewer that it is very cheap, very light pot metal. Poorly formed with a big ridge down the middle. Plus the square end makes no sense to me, unless your pipe bowl has corners. Get a Czech Tool instead. they are nearly as cheap, but actually are useful.
DK of Holland, MI
Thanks, these are getting harder to find lately
JV of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
Nice tool. As mentioned in another review, it is deceiving light. I think it might be cast aluminum? For the price you can't beat it and you won't care too much if you lose it. Personally I wish it was a little more rounded.
BL of Belleville, IL
Lighter than you'd think it would be, seems like pot metal. Does the job though, and the price is right.
SM of Cortland, IL
Its simple as it gets. But gets the job done.
