LV-2608 Cork Oak & Betelnut Slim Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

LV-2608 Cork Oak & Betelnut Slim Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Cork Oak (Quercus suber) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap.   As you can probably tell, I have a weakness for oaks and their acorns.  A symbol of strength and endurance, oak is the national tree of many Western countries, including the US.  Cork Oak is even more special for producing all those corks that you uncorked for special (or not so special) occasions.  Unlike some porous oaks, this species has very fine grain wood that accept threading nicely.  Betelnut is also a nut for special occasion for SE Asian cultures.  In Viet Nam, it is one of the required wedding gift the groom has to bring to the bride's home on wedding day. The nut is offered in combination with Betel leave and some other ingredients as a sign of hospitality in formal gatherings.  So, this is the holder of special occasions.

The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, cash stash and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
