I purchased this as a present, but love it so much I think I want to keep it or at least order me one. I love that it’s made of wood. I also love that it muddles the delicate herbs and other ingredients, not destroy them with plastic TEETH. This is more of a natural smash and grind. I also am impressed with the design of the handle of the muddle. This will make a nice addition to any bar or kitchen. It’s very stylish and has it’s own velveteen storage bag.
