I was really happy using KFBR out of the bottle when my wife got me this flask. It DOES look really cool, but I don't see how it could be functional for me Sad
I've now used it 3 times and every time I get spillovers and cramps trying to hold it.
Teach me!

Hi beartrap,

Haha, I got the same big spills the first time I tried it. It's too good to waste on spillovers. Wink Here's my method I've found for the most success:

* I place my Thumb over the mouth of the flask.
* My other fingers are all gripping the *bottom* of the flask. So you're kinda forming a letter "C" with this grip.
* I then adjust my Thumb slightly, so that I have a slight opening (so my Thumb covers ~90% of the flask opening).
* I tilt the flask and gently drip out as much Frostbite (or Bay Rum) as I need. Smile


With this method, I can get a controlled amount of Aftershave as needed.

Good luck!

If I try to form a "C" around the flask, the whole thing will slip out! I think I need a video on this Biggrin

Ken! Thanks so much -- I've been looking for a solution like this for a lot of my splashes. So many bottles have really wide mouths.

Really? I just hold it so the engraving is facing down and pour the desired amount out. If I pour with the engraving up I spill evertime though.

Doesn't work for me, I've tried it both sides up and down, maybe I'm just clumsy but that never happened with other containers.

This is how I do it:
   
Thumb, ring finger and pinkie grabs the flask. Middle finger holds the lid back, while I use my index finger to block most of the opening.

Works wonders for me - but I got fairly large paws Wink

Interesting. Now we see the left and right handed way to do it.

Put Scotch in it and you will never spill a drop.

Thanks Johnny, beartrap, Matt. Smile

I like Hans' grip method also. Smile

Yes, first time I used the flask, I dispensed way too much too, but now I wouldn't have it any other way. I grasp the flask with a finger over the opening and give a decent shake. I then invert the bottle over my other opened hand, release the pressure of my finger over the spout just a little to allow a controlled measure of Krampert's to escape the vessel, then slap it about my face to enjoy its soothing qualities...

I appreciate the fact that the flask is available for those who want "cool" packaging (and I bought one, of course, when I bought some Frostbite); but also that it's not needed and we can save on the packaging for the fully functional, easy to use plastic bottles with a very good regulator.

I don't think the flask really is necessary or even helpful at all. But it is cool.

Actually the product intended for the flask is best stored inside the flask. Of course I'm referring to Kramperts Finest and not something drinkable. I consider the plastic bottle to be a refill with the advent of the flask, yet I continue to supply a useable plastic bottle for those who object to paying for premium packaging. Keep the plastic bottle in the dark and there would be no meaningful difference. The natural ingredients in my products are degraded by light; the Stainless Steel composing the flask is totally opaque and so can be stored in full sunlight if one has no other option. The other quality that the product needs to dodge is excess O2. By just snugging up the cap of the flask when finished it keeps out the oxygen (resist torquing it down for longevity of the gasket). The rest of the flask is just cool, and durable, since it's steel.

FWIW, I use the flask the same way Hans does. Fingers holding the cap out of the way, forefinger closing the orifice to allow a trickle. There are so many ways to use it, do what works for you.

I've also done nothing and just used caution when pouring it with a full opening. I prefer Hans' way though. Just a sliver of an opening is all that's required to get it to dribble out. The forefinger produces the orifice.

Is Frostbite going to be available directly from the Krampert's Finest website or only from WCS and IB?

Eventually from the website. Thanks for the reminder, I need to contact my webmaster to get it done. The reason it wasn't from day 1 was to support the retailers. OK, 2nd reason. I couldn't handle the amount of orders that IB sent out. It would have swamped me. But now there's no reason not to put it on the site.
