How to hand cut whole leaf tobacco for pipe smoking

I demonstrate the simplest way to cut whole leaf tobacco (with a knife). I’m using a homegrown flue cured tobacco called Helena – seeds from Northwood Seeds.
I pulled a leaf out to see how the post-curing kilning process is going. It will still need another two weeks at 121F and 75% humidity, and a couple weeks of rest until it’s aged to my liking.
