they are a tad expensive (7.50 - 10 each affraid ) so i wouldn't use them in snaggy waters, but they are indeed works of art. Each one takes 2-3 weeks to make because of the craftsmanship and laquering process.

Nice find tootall Wink

I'd be too worried to use them in case I lost them, but they wouldn't look out of place in a display cabinet! afro
