What do you use to break your tobacco and load your bowl over? Right now I'm just using a piece of paper folded in half. Makes it easy to fold and load the dropped pieces into the bowl or back in the jar.

I have a leather mat. Well two. One is just plain, the other has a welt/edge this is rope stitched on that goes around three sides. I’d post a pic but the fancy one is in TN and I’m in NC. They serve the same purpose as a sheet of paper or napkin.

I too use the 81/2 x11 paper. Cheap, flexible, reusable, and disposable.
Maybe some day I’ll upgrade.

I use the palm of my hand if I am not loading from a pouch or a pound bag.

Me Three.

I also have been known to take a weeks worth of tobacco that I am diggin' and put it in a ziplock so I can codger scoop. Particularly if it's tobacco that needs any dry time.

Smoke more C&D or D&R, and it will come delivered not needing the dry time - just saying.

This is actually a good point. I will do my best to rectify the situation. 8-)

I have some leather mats I picked up on the bay as scraps from upholstery shops or old sample pieces. For things that need an insane amount of dry time I have a small acacia wood bowl I'll toss it in to air out
