    They are nice but I share Jim's astonishment! That's ok, I'll stick with my $10 Wild Turkey flask I got down at this years festival. Gets me through the day just the same haha.

    To Anyone That Is Listening!: If somebody is dumb enough to buy TexasCarl one, I'll take one too! I just had a birthday-it's not to late. Seriously, they're nice, but how much craftsmenship can run that tab up to $458!? Does that include round trip air-fare to Finland to pick it up?! See ya'll H'wood

    I just got back from the state store and they started bringing out the Holiday gift packs. They had a Bottling of Jim Black with a spiffy hip flask and they were selling it for exactly two dollars LESS than the Bottle of bourbon by itself!!

    That sounds like a plan to me!

    Dang it boys, quit trying to pee on my parade. You don't want to waste $450 on a hipflask, well, that's your bidness but quit howling. I might have been able to fool the unwary, but not now. Guess I'll make do with my trusty 3 oz pewter flask, but you have to admit that these are purty.

    Actually, the price is all whack because they're handmade in Finland. The wily Finns (rightly) won't work for free, and we have a rotten exchange rate with almost all the Skandahoovian countries.

    FYI, there are also some really nice knives at that site...look around, but don't come running to me if the one you like costs a week's wages.

    I just took a quick look at the sight, Carl. You're right about the knives - I have an old puukko knife that I used to use for general fishing and outdoor work. It holds an edge sharp enough to cut air. I'll never part with it.

    Knives

    Ralph,
    In case you want to buy some puukko knives, or their Swedish & Norwegian equivalent, this site is run by really stand up guy.

    Note: the puukos and all of his inexpensive Mora knives from Sweden are a BEST BUY. 10 minutes on an India stone and these become some scary sharp knives, cheap enough you can give them away without a qualm. Good knives, it just happens they don't cost a fortune. Think Old Forrester or your own personal favorite sub-$20 bourbon. Save the fancy stuff for later, a fella needs a good go-to bourbon and good go-to cutlery. Ragnar
