It's a good idea to start out with a pipe that has what you feel is an average size bowl: not too wide, too large, too small, too narrow, too deep. Once you feel comfortable with this technique, you'll be able to adapt it easily for any of your pipes.

Both Herr Frank and Herr Kropp point out that the best way to learn this method is to see someone else pack their pipe in person. We'll try to get as close to that as we can.


Flake tobaccos must be fully rubbed out in order to work with this technique.

You'll also need a surface to work, and, more specifically, to spill tobacco on, as you'll see in the subsequent pictures.
