I think fold n stuff works if you need the speed and maybe som elegancy. But rubbing first is the safer option if you are aiming for an hour without relighting.
I found this out myself by accident, having left a folded & stuffed flake in a cob for a day or so before I got around to smoking it a few times. Lights and burns much easier as a result - just gotta make sure to take it easy.Try folding and stuffing the flake into the pipe and then let the pipe sit over night. The tobacco should be plenty dry and should light a little easier.
That will work just fine. I use that method all the time. I know my pipes so well that when I have a larger bowl, I know I will need more than just one flake. I have tighter bowls that take less than one flake.Like this?
I generally use either the 'cube' cut, or rubbing the flake out in my palm. I've not have much luck with folding and stuffing the flakes. I use scissors to cut the flakes into 'bacon-bits' size, then gravity feed the bowl. Works for me.
Exactly my process too.I told along the length, then in half, give it a little twist and stuff. I've done it so many times now, I could do it blindfolded. If there's too much to fit the bowl, I pull some small pieces out so it does stuff easily. If there's room left, I add some of the small pieces in the tin to fill it up. Less than ten seconds.
Fold and stuff for me too . I have a narrow tsuge “the tasting” 16 mm, just for a flake slice smoke.Yep, fold and stuff works for me.
