After receiving my order of many kinds of snuff, I've finally realized that my method, using a snuff spoon, is not that versatile. It's fine for very dry and fine toast snuffs, but just a bit more coarse or moist and it doesn't make sense. It just makes clumps and clogs my nose.
Generally I didn't like pinching my snuff because I find it a bit unsanitary; but it seems I have no other option. For example, the Indian Super Kailash is a very moist but fine snuff, how do I use a snuff spoon? Should I dry it out? Pinching it works fine, but if I pinch it too tight it compresses. But the scent releases better.
Almost the same with Taxi Red. It works fine with a snuff spoon, but it's very fluffy so when I want to take a big spoonful, I end up taking a little bit so I've resorted to pinching this one exclusively.
So yeah. My question is: is using the spoon appropriate at all times, or are there times when it's less than useful? Maybe I'm missing something.
