I really wanted this to help me carry around snuff and not worry about the tins. I wound not using the vial much and just using the spoon. The vial had was too small to get a good sized amount out of. I do use the spoon regularly though and honestly, the vial is kind of good because it makes it easier to hold. For the price, it's a really useful spoon, not so much on the vial. I use this one a ton for messy or really fine snuffs, but I don't use it to cart snuff around when I'm out.
