Okay, need is a strong word, but look at this thing. Nisnas Industries has taken a chunk of oak and turned it into a functional piece of art by hand. I’ve never had a wooden whiskey tumbler, but the founder of Nisnas says the oak enhances the barrel character of the bourbon. I honestly don’t care. I want it because it’s beautiful. Nisna Industries has taken to Kickstarter to fund the tumbler. They also make a couple of really cool wood and stainless steel flasks. Check out the gallery to see all this good wood.

The Upper Cut is essential a larger version of the Kole. For when you're really thirsty. It's insulated, so it'll keep coffee hot if that's your thing.
