Pack lucid like any other tobacco. It does not need special treatment.

why is he speaking in the fake accent, is that just part of his not wanting to be on video/recording

cool vid though but that is still a huge amount of tobacco

i bought noir and the fork in hopes to do this same thing w/ john......but what he did ended up being better lol.

its a good vid, let me just say that I never got noir to smoke right until I ordered the tobacco and fork recently. I practiced a little bit and honestly did what eric shows before I saw this video....for the most part. I eyeballed the tobacco instead of the palm test and I used smaller holes...and it worked like a charm. Making sure tobacco isnt on the side of the bowl is a good idea too because that stuff is just gonna burn to a crisp. I still use a fumari puncher for small holes so chunks of ash dont fall through...

Also, I would like to point out that they were smoking on a Nour.

Question to ask is we all say how many coals were used on the large, how many does he suggest on a small?

^--you sure its a nour....the stem looked fairly ornate, but the tray was very shitty and generic. But hey...I guess some nours are like that. ^_^ But I m just saying this from memory having only watched the videos hours ago.

When I went to his lounge he suggested me to use 1 and a half coconaru on my small

the stem looked like an AF but w/a ball atop the tapper. Definitelty a Syrian nonetheless. And how in the world can you tell if a tray is ''shitty'' from a video?

That is Eric's KP pipe, which is an Al Narwa. Still Syrian brass, though...

I wish this technique did not take so much damn tobacco. Even with my small funnel if I packed like that I would be using somewhere around 40g of tobacco...

I am considering making a new order and picking up some classic Tangiers as well as some JM. It all depends on what the next check looks like.

Definitely. I usually pack my Tangiers pretty tight and in my smallest Egyptian but it still takes a bit of tobacco to do so.

Okay so I have this "lucky lemon fork" I bought it at a Goodwill auction online. I use to do or sell antiques before hookah. I bought it, it was black and didn't look like much I paid $12.00 for it with shipping included, it's from Sweden, and it's silver. I have this fork on my monitor at all times as a lucky charm. I think it would make a perfect fork for packing shisha in a small bowl, it measures 4" in length. I am going to the Goodwill to pick up a bunch of these and I am selling them! Lol![

ya i am going to steal an idea that was around here where someone (cant remember who) that took a monster energy drink lid of one of the uber big cans, pulled the seal out of it and put it in a large bowl upside down and packed then tangiers in there to keep it from dripping but saved a boat load of tobacco. im just going to take some AL sheet metal i have and make a little piece like that to fit the bowl that comes with the KM i am looking at getting and seeing how that works. i might have to make some air channels along the side but thats no biggie. if i can get it to work well i will probably offer to make them for people for trades or something
