I dunno about anyone else.....but when I have had hash in the past I would gently warm it with a lighter for just a second or two. Then gently rub it between your fingers to "fluff" the hash.
That makes it really easy to light and smoke.
when mine get small lik e that i try to shave it verry fine that way you can just add what you need with your knife edge. ( kinda like you would a line of powder) that way its fine and easy to use. just a suggestion tho:tokin:
