Had a quick question. When I nub a cigar I typically utilize the services of a toothpick but was looking to upgrade. On many fellow BOTLs pics I see a screw w/ like a spring on it. I was wondering what this was and where these could be located? Thanks in advance!

That is the corncob holder. I have the same one and they work perfectly. Found at your local grocer.

I use a surgical hemostat.

You can buy them pretty cheap.

Or, if you know a doctor or a dentist, they usually can supply you a used one.

My most effective nub tool has been a fondue fork. Took a WOAM down to just about nothing and only quit when it was starting to burn my lips to try and smoke it any further...

Definitely don't need to drop a bunch of money on a nub tool.

Found several of those in one of Marie's kitchen drawers...actually it was more like a cocktail fork with two prongs...two prongs keeps the nub from spinning around like when it's in a single prong...

The question is what else do you smoke with that?
