What Is a Dabber Tool?

A dabber tool is an elongated object with a sharp point at the end. Dabbers are generally constructed from glass or stainless steel metal and can increase the safety and neatness of your dabbing experience. 


What Is a Dabber Used For?

Dabbing utensils serve as a protective barrier between your bare hands and the heated surface, preventing you from getting burned while you’re dabbing. A dabber can be compared to a cooking utensil like metal tongs that a chef uses to pick up a hot potato. The dabber serves the same purpose with a different object.


How Do You Use a Dabbing Tool?

Apply your dabbing tool directly to the nail inside the dome of your torch and inhale. Rotate the tip a bit to catch any excess oil and prevent it from dripping. Exhale and enjoy. 


What Can You Use for a Dabbing Tool?

The best dab tool will have a sharp edge and be easy to grasp in your hand. Any tool with a quartz or titanium tip should do the trick for your dabbing experience. So, you may use a dab straw, honey or nectar collector, or even a torch lighter as a dabbing tool. You can also purchase a dab kit that includes a dab pick and other tools for avid dabbers.
