A while back, we talked about how to prepare rope tobacco using a cigar cutter. Recently I've translated this technique to plug tobaccos. Rather than using a knife to slice off flakes, simply take your cigar cutter and shave off tiny "microflakes" from the corners of the brick. Here's a video of what I call the "slice and dice" method.
Again, a very special thanks to our videographer Peter Kogler for another great video!
