I gave this as a gift to my friend. My boyfriend used to be a bartender, so I asked him to check it out and do quality control, to make sure it was the great quality I thought it was when I ordered it. He said it was excellent quality that will stay nice and not rust. He said it was definately good enough to give to my snobby friend for a present and impress him. It worked, my friend was impressed and loves his present! The stir didn't fit in the box with everything so it comes seperately. It was not a problem for me. But I just wanted to make the note.
