Default Using Round Finger Coals

So, I have a bag of Stargate round finger coals: http://www.hookahkings.com/hookah-ch...s/prod_66.html, but they are a pain to use because they are round.

Heat management is almost impossible with them, because they roll to the same spot on the bowl whenever i move them.

Generally, its hard to break up the pieces to be small enough for the bowl, so what ends up happening is that I have a long, bowl length log that only heats the same spot.

Trying to break it into smaller, more manageable round logs just breaks it.

Any suggestions?

have you tried using a sharp knife? maybe you want to light them first and then use a knife since the coal will be weaker. try that.

what if once you get them cut, sit them on their side like a little pillar if you know what i mean. so the flat part from the cut sits on the foil

sounds like a good idea.

So,

I think both your ideas are good.

I tried using a serrated knife to saw the coals in half, but its pretty time consuming and makes a huge mess.

I really like the pillar idea, but the pieces are generally to large to stand up without fear of complete coal disaster.

So, I decided to combine your two ideas:

I found a big, cleaver style knife. They I just chopped of a small piece (about the size of a coco nara). Because one side (or hopefully both) are flat, I can stand it up like a pillar. Cutting it with one large chop creates almost no mess and makes a clean break. I'll try them out in the next couple days and see how this new method works.
