So today is payday (woohoo!) and I headed to the B&M. The humidor didn't really have anything that called out to me, so I head to the pipe section. I grab myself a tin of both Peterson Irish and University Flake, along with a tin of Rattray's Marlin Flake. They all smell soooo good, can't wait to pop a bowl in. Well the advice I'm looking for is how do I handle the Marlin? It's a few long strips, folded over each other. They feel a bit loose, like they will easily rub out. I'm a bit scared to try cutting them apart because I don't want to do something stupid like completely destroy the flakes. Should I just keep them all together and cut off what I need when I'm going to smoke it, or should I cut it all at once and lay it all on top of each other? Oh, and this tin was received on 10/27/09!! Already over a year old! Thanks for the advice and reading my wall o' worried text.
