Why Every Gentleman Should Own a Wooden Hip Flask

Natural Wood Finish
We apply one light layer of polyurethane to our wood products, before they are laser cut, engraved, cleaned and packaged for you. No additional chemicals or treatments are added. Your wood is left in (as close to) a natural state as possible. Unlike plastic or even glass, your wood product will get better looking with age. Every scratch, scuff and dent will add character and uniqueness. (If you came to WUDN looking for Piano Finish Lacquer, you're in the wrong place).
If you need to clean your wood product, just wipe down with a damp cloth. Something stickier? Use a mild soap (hand soap works well) or rubbing alcohol (spray it on the cloth first). If you want to accelerate the aging process, rub in some bees wax (my favorite) or Linseed, tung, refined hemp, soy, or walnut oil, all penetrate, harden and preserve wood.

Is my wooden flask covered in real wood?
Yes, the all wooden bar accessories including flasks and bottle openers and more, are covered (on both sides) in real wood, hand selected by our team for beauty and uniqueness. Wood options for most products include Mahogany, Black Walnut, Carmalized Bamboo, Aromatic Cedar, American Cherry, Purple Heart or Shimmering (Curly) Maple.
Will my wood flask get stained and ugly?
It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood flasks actually get better looking over time. We ship the flasks with only one light layer of polyurethane (to protect from UV damage). This means the case will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues.
Do I have to be a man to enjoy a flask?
Of course not. That's some dated misogynistic bullshit. You can be a man or a woman or something in between, none of that matters. What matters is your enjoyment of good whiskey-et al, with good people, and on your terms. That's the whole point of the flask. Yes, words like 'gentleman' are sexist but I can't change how search engines work. Deal with it.
How do I clean my new wooden flask?
Clean the outside first. With the flask closed and sealed, use a damp cloth with a little hand soap to thoroughly wash the outside. Then clean the inside. It’s as simple as this: rinse it out with hot water (very Hot Water) when you get home, leave the cap off and let it dry overnight. Never use soap on the inside because you’ll never get the residue out of the flask completely, and this will affect the taste of the liquor. If you are changing the type of booze you carry, rinse it out with a little lemon juice and then hot water.
How often should I change the booze in my flask?
Once bottled at the distillery, booze can have quite a long shelf life. However, once you start carrying it around in a flask, you’ll bruise it with all the shaking. If you’re carrying a flask of booze, you should be drinking the entire thing anyway – we’re only talking about 6 or so ounces of liquor. How long you carry it should not be an issue. But how long it will stay fresh is a matter of days, and at the most, a week. Once you fill your flask, you should be able to enjoy its contents in one or two outings without too much effort.
