poking holes randomly all over and no foil is a disaster waiting to happen

I've seen some devices that are specifically used to punch the holes in the foil. Sounds like they're either worthless or not commonly used...

I've been told that pokin a small amout of holes is better than poking a lot.. Um the patern I use is I make a star like pattern but only poke the corners I only end up poking 14 holes with a tooth pick.. But is it better to poke more or less?

I'm sorry to say but that puncher doesn't look that great. The spikes don't look very sharp. I feel like they will just squish down your tobacco and crinkle the hell out of your foil.

You can just as easy use a sewing needle. It takes you a couple of seconds more. Besides it looks like the points on the puncher can't even reach deep. So the warmth can't go trough the tabacco.
