in regards to
the humming rods, after placing knicks at the various harmonics, how is
the rod then held and excited to produce these tones?

Hold the rod between thumb and index finger at the scratch. Grasp
tightly and stroke with thumb and index finger of the other hand - rosin
on the stroking fingers. My own "technique" is to stroke from the end of
the rod towards the point where you're holding it, but I've seen it done in
a variety of ways.
