As I have a huge diversity of lovely fine and dry snuffs that I still find difficult to take,
I decided to make my own modern version of this ancient shamanic tool.
Just received 30cm of good transparent acrylic pipe (12mm diamater x 10mm bore works best for my nostrils) and half of it (15cm) is already my new straw.
1.Plastic transparent pipe (cheap and easy to find on ebay, I bought it from here
2.Some kind of fine saw ( a typical victorinox/leatherman pocket knife-tool might be difficult to use, but it worked for me)
3.Some sandpaper - fine (60) and superfine (150) grit should be ok.
4.Good professional grade adhesive (I found something called Cyanoacrylate Adhesive GR016, high viscosity general purpose fast cure superglue)
I prefer to make my own because I dont really buy into the magical mumbojumbo sold on etsy or ebay and I want it transparent so it would be easier to clean and see through.
One can find tutorials online, for example here
is a fast DIY one.
Will post some pics these days after I test and modify it properly.
