About Pipe Picks

As far as Native American pipe tools, the pick was traditionally a pointed wooden stick used to clean the pipe bowl and stir the herbs and grasses. After tobacco was introduced, tampers were made to press the tobacco tightly in the bowl so it would burn slower and stay lit.

About Pipe Tampers

There are a number of different pipe tools that can be used depending on the smoking mixture. These include the pick and the tamper. A pick stirs up the smoking mixture, giving it more air so it will burn more readily and quickly. It can also be used to clean the pipe bowl. A tamper packs the smoking mixture down so it burns more evenly and more slowly.

About Alan Monroe

Lakota artist Alan Monroe began making catlinite tampers about 20 years ago. They are made of solid sacred catlinite from Alan's own quarry at Pipestone National Monument in Pipestone Minnesota. The stone has been buffed and polished with beeswax.
