    "poke sg with sg"

    Dear forum members,
    I would like to know whether these sentences are grammatical in English:
    This stick has to be poked with.
    This stick is meant to be poked with.
    I will poke you with a stick and Tom will do so with a long cane.
    Thanks in advance for your help,

    The first two don't really work for me- Id use 'this stick is for poking'. The last one's fine.
