From what I've read, it seems that almost everyone pinches their snuff. This does deliver a nice flow -- but man, what a mess! It just happened to be a weekend when I first started snuffing that I noticed in the mirror the big brown mess around my nostrils! Holy crap, if I looked like that inadvertently at work sometime, I'd be the subject of many conversations... :D I'd have to learn to keep myself well cleaned up if I were going to pinch my snuff routinely.
Anyway, I've found using a snuff spoon to be the favored way to take my snuff. Am I the rarity? How many of you folks use a spoon?
They're hard to find and often quite expensive (antiques) when I do, so I ended up making a few. I like being able to select a spoon size that reflects the character of the snuff I'm using, too. Small spoon for toast for example.
Well, just curious. Anyone else take their snuff this way?
