Default pokermagig on tongs

i know this came up before just couldnt find it but what is the intention of the poker on tong sets?

i know there are many uses for them: stirring shish, pushing coals/ash off and around bowls, poking holes in foil

but what is the intention?

its there to let you know you have it. if you see a dangling thing off your tray, you have tongs

but seriously, its used for all of the above

It's used to tap the coal tray and the stem of the hookah. It was originally designed to be a certain density so it would make the right two tones used in some prayer rights in the middle and far east. Later on the taper was added to the end after foil was used. Before that there was no foil and no need for a "poker".

Modern hookah and نخزة (the traditional name) are not made to the old traditions.

it depends on which ones you have, some of them are thin enough if you sharpen them up some they work well but ya most are junk for that

i have some of the fancy shmancy tongs that dont have a single flat edge on the so i use the poker to clean ash off and it seels to work well for that at least

I take the poker in mine and bend it into a hook so I can hook it onto my purge valve...

I rarely have to go looking for my tongs this way.
