The thai stick style is modeled after the Thai sticks of the 60s and 70s.
First remove the thai stick from the tube.
Starting from the wood tip end and slowly unwind the hemp wick cord until removed.
Now hold the thai stick cradled in your hand holding the tip with your pointer finger and thumb.
Grab the pointed tip of the skewer while holding the thai stick like described above, slowly pull the wood skewer up through the tip until completely removed.
Now light the end like a cigar and enjoy!
