If I used a shamir to cut through over-baked colov yisroel NY pizza and also to penetrate my mother-in-law's dry meatloaf, would I need one shamir worm for meat and the other for dairy, or can I use the same worm for both?

And if I need to keep separate shamir worms, can I still wrap them in wool and keep them in the same lead container?

  • wouldn't the worm just have to wait 6 hours? Or less if he's Dutch? – rosends Mar 15 '16 at 1:14

    He could be Dutch, but I forgot to think about if he was shamir negiah. In that case, separate lead jars would best. – user3342 Mar 15 '16 at 1:22

Chalav is an acronym of chesed lev, the mother's kindness to the child. Basar is an acronym of beis sar, the house of a prince, as poor people do not eat meat.

We do not combine these concepts so a mother's love is never jaundiced by physical acquisitions.

Shamir is an acronym for shin mar, because when it cuts through pizza it leaves a bitter taste. Therefore it is nosen taam liphgam and the same worm can be used for meat and milk.
