Silver Pipe Nails

This is the basic pipe tool. One flat end to use as a tamper, the other with a scraper or spoon to clear the dottle from the bowl. They tend to disappear like socks in a dryer, so it's not a bad idea to pick up a handful so you always have spares on hand.

Classic simplicity
These are, had none, the best of pipe tool designs. Simple and effective. They seem to be getting hard to find. The only possible better pipe tool is the Shefield (sstainless) pipe knife- but only if you forgot a pipe cleaner to break up a blocked draft!

Good tool, no frills.
Works how you would expect. Nothing special but a good solid options for not a lot of cash.

Economy item, but functional --
This aluminum pipe nail is a great economical substitute for replacing lost or misplaced tampers. Why buy an expensive one, when you can get one at about 1/4 the price? It functions well as a tamper and the tip easily removes any loose tobacco buildup, between smokes. Quite handy, when a reamer is not readily available. It's light weight and the semi-rounded tip minimizes boring holes in your pocket, when not being used. Even though they don't seem to ever wear out, I bought a few of these to keep as spares.

Common sense choice
My go-to pipe nail. I have other exotic styles but I always reach for this one. You can't beat the price and simplicity.

Does the job
The silver nail is a very light, but functional tamper. The other end is flattened and not sharp, so it is good for my pocket. Price and functionality give this a five star in my opinion.

Great as a spare tamper --
This aluminum tamper does a fine job with packing after the first light, keeping tobacco firmly in the bowl for an even smoke. They're easily wiped clean with a damp cloth. I store one in my pouch as a spare, tucking it in amongst the tobacco. Otherwise, the nail end may pierce the lining and initiate a tear. I bought a few of them, as they make great spares when my regular pipe tool is not readily available.

Tough to drive in PT lumber
I saw these and thought they would work well. Especially with the interesting shape on the head of the nail. I thought a dollar a piece was a little expensive, but you have to use galvanized outdoor so I thought I'd try them for an outdoor deck I was building. Well, turns out that the head of these nails aren't sharp at all. It made it very difficult to drive them into my pressure treated deck boards. And toe nailing the rails was impossible. I ended up having to finish up with a couple of galvanized 8d nails I found rattling around in the bottom of a mason jar in my shed. I would not recommend these for pressure treated lumber at all. I did have one left over and used it as sort of a makeshift tamper for my pipe though and it worked very well. That funny tip even ended up being useful for scooping out the ash.

Hard to drive, kind of expensive
Bought a hundred of these for my back patio. A hundred dollars seemed expensive, but you have to use galvanized fasteners when your work is going to be exposed to the elements. And I got free shipping. I thought the tip looked kind of cool, like some new design over a traditional nail, but I gave it a shot anyway. Turns out that because of this type of point, it required a lot more effort to drive this into a pressure treated 2x6. And toe nailing them was impossible. If I had it to do over again, I would just buy a pound of galvanized 8d nails at the hardware store for like a tenth of what these cost. One good thing, though is that after my deck was finished, I had one of these nails left over and it worked really good as a kind of make shift tobacco pipe tamper. That funny point kind of made it easy to scoop out all the ash when I was done.

Very functional --
I’ve been buying these bargain tampers at P&C for many years. They do their expected job, are easy to clean and never wear out. I keep them in my cars and workshop, along with a spare in my pouch. These pipe nails are extremely lightweight and tend to get lost easily, especially when doing yard work. That’s why I always keep spares on hand. Best of all, they help prevent my quality pipe tools from getting lost.

Get a handfull whenever ordering tobacco
There's nothing to go wrong with these tools. They're solid, just the right size, and do what they're supposed to. Tip: Get a handfull of these when you're ordering tobacco. They won't add to your shipping cost that way. You'll lose them long before you ever wear them out. I'm convinced the pipe tool gnomes come around every night to steal pipe tools.

A good, cheap pipe nail
There is very little to say about this pipe nail, except to say it does it's job to perfection and is quite handy to use. I have several of them since I have a tendency to misplace one now and then. I see no need to purchase anything more expensive.

Simple and practical
They're solid, cheap, and get the job done. My favorite pipe tool by far. I buy several at once because I tend to lose pipe tools. The end of it resembles a spoon but it isn't concave like a scoop. I just use it to soften the ash up so I can dump it halfway through a smoke (I don't like the taste of burning ash) They are best used as a tamper but that's all you really need. Cheap enough to buy several at once. Don't have to worry about them falling apart on you. I'd recommend it top any pipe smoker

Silver Pipe Nail is my personal favorite.
This silver pipe nail is my favorite pocket pipe tamping and mild scraping tool. Came in a bundle so I got it for a very nice price. Thanks Pipes and Tobacco.

it's a great pipe nail. I thought at first it was made of plastic, but I believe it's aluminum.

Really nailed it...
...with these pipe nails. They are cheap, so you can buy a few to keep in your car, coat pocket, pipe bag, etc. And if you lose them, no love lost. I will say though that the tamping head may be a little big for tapered bowls. It's not a deal breaker though. That could be modified with a little ingenuity if your favorite pipe falls in that category.

What can I say? Simple little device that's been around since Moses was a baby. Lightweight, rustproof aluminum that fits easily into your pocket or pouch. Sure beats dirty or burned fingers for tamping your pipe.

Good Ol' Pipe Nail
Cheap,Easy and Plentiful! What else is there to say? it's a Pipe Nail! Inexpensive enough to leave one everywhere I go and one to carry. They're like basic pipe cleaners, not pretty but gets the job done.

Good for the money
This is good at what it does, excellent size on the tamper size and the scraper is decent. For the money you can't go wrong but I would recommend spending a dollar more and order the Czech tool

Poor QC
I don't normally write reviews, but I felt I needed to provide feedback on this product. I have had a pipe nail previously (just like the one shown in the picture), but gave it to a friend. So, I ordered a new one to replace it. Don't get me wrong, it obviously will still perform the basic tasks of tamping and scraping. But the QC on this is terrible - it should not have passed. It is clearly hand ground, and then sand-blasted. Nothing is circular, symmetrical, or even. It looks like a 7th grade shop project from the reject bin. I am reluctant to use it to scrape my bowl due to the odd & uneven curve of the "spoon" end. It's not a huge deal due to the small price tag, but I would still like to find a quality replacement for the pipe nail I used to have.

The idea pipe tool for everyday use
I'll be getting another of these! I've been using the multi-tool for a while and picked up one of these on a whim, but it works so much better for me that I carry this all the time and leave the other with the pipe stand at home. It is light-weight, simple, easy to clean, and very functional.

Great Buy!
Why did I buy just one of these. These things are great and how can ya argue with the price. Best little pipe tool I've used!
Customer Testimonials
The large tamp area is ideal for getting a more uniform tamp on the ember unlike some of the smaller diameter tamps that some with pipe lighters...they will compress a small area of the ash/amber area and I find them to be not a very consistent tamp...these nail are simple and work excellent ...highly recommended !
RA of derry, NH
These serve the purpose as a tamper and scraper. However I like having a punch like the 3-in-1 tools have because some times I pack my pipe a little too tight and that punch is perfect for opening up just a small hole. I will still keep these on hand, especially for traveling.
TO of Concord, NC
A simple must have for any pipe smoker. Buy lots as you might lose one or two to your mooching friends.
MS of Frankfort, KY
Nice little inexpensive tool. It was to my surprise slightly larger than expected. Not bad at all but I think I prefer the horseshoe tool.
BL of Belleville, IL
It's simple and it works.
KJ of Aiea, HI
These things are really handy and inexpensive. I have several in a small wooden box on my desk, at all times. One of these and a small, sharp pocket knife are the only pipe tools I use.
JB of Seguin, TX
Exactly what I was looking for at a great price. I bought the 4-pack. Let's face it we all lose pipe tools, at a dollar a piece, I won't lose any sleep when I do? The perfect pipe tool - cheap and simple.
BB of Valley Center, KS
They're pipe tools , a nail at that. Plain, simple pipe tool and very cheap. Go ahead and get a bunch.
