Cut from the farm’s old growth trees – Oak, Pecan, Chestnut – some of the tobacco sticks were made from wood that, no doubt, stood during American revolutionary days. I admire their strength, history and perseverance.
For you who are new to owning a painted tobacco stick I recommend starting with one to lean in a corner. They’re 1″ slivers of life, slender bolts of wooden wonderfulness. Let yours mosey. It will find it’s perfect spot eventually. You’ll see.
