    Supposedly holds little over 3/4 ounce ribbon, double that for flake.

    Not a flaw, but there is one thing about it that is holding me back.

    If it lasts a lifetime it only costs 3.00 a year tops!

    2.00 a year?
     
  16. That is nice but as others have said, a tad too expensive for me. I'm not hundred percent sold on them splashing the logo all over it, either. I've just this second been outsniped on a Baccyflap :( been after one for ages.

    Is it easy enough to open? The Baccyflaps have a thread, I presume this is a "pull off" lid?
     
  17. Same way I rationalize purchases!

    It opens easily and as you surmised it is a press fit, though if you are a serial nail biter it would be a bit difficult. There is an o-ring that mates to a groove machined in the cover that locks the two halves together. It isn’t airtight so the tobacco will eventually dry out, but I cannot smell the tobacco when closed so I am confident it will maintain moisture for a significant length of time.

    I was gunning for a Baccyflap as well, but at more than half the price of the Morgan one, I went for the Morgan one. Truth be told a plastic baggie will do the job just as well for a day’s worth of Toby.

    That doesn’t mean I won’t get me a Baccyflap later on tho...
