With my new Sako Coasters!
Where did you find those. Need a set.
A guy that I know made them. Here's his contact info.
His email is, [email protected] his phone number is402 470 1442
They cost $25 for 4, or $35 for 6, with $8.00 shipping.
Very cool. What are they made out of?
Not sure what they are made of.... Slate???
The guy told me that they do absorb some water. And not to let them freeze if they do or they will crack.
Coasters that absorb water????? Polyurethane to the rescue!
Actually, a good coaster should be somewhat absorbent. Otherwise the water from condensation will run off onto the table underneath, negating the purpose of the coaster. That's why coasters are often made of cork. I have a set of coasters made of sandstone, with a cork base to keep them from marring the surface underneath. The porous sandstone absorbs condensation or spills, then quickly dries out. Sandstone coasters are a popular Arizona gift item, or a souvenir for snowbirds.
Another hazard is that a smooth, non-absorbent coaster can stick to the bottom of a wet glass and then fall on the floor or wherever.
I do have some impervious coasters, which I reserve for use with wine or other drinks where the glasses don't sweat much. I don't use them with beer served in a frozen mug or a well-iced gin and tonic.
So the Sako coasters look nice, but the white lettering isn't going to hold up if your glass sweats much.
I have a set marked "Bofors". Very rare. None imported to USA.
There laser engraved so the lettering should not fade, at least mine haven't.
Your coffee would taste even better if you drank it while wearing a Sako T Shirt!

I absolutely agree!
What about the 'cog' logo from the 70's?
That’s on the back!
Doesn’t everyone get one when they join up?
