Besides the traditional snuffbox for having a pinch, there are rarely pouring boxes available. Sure, a lot of the Pöschl snuffs come in the handy plastic pouring boxes, but I wanted a wooden box without a certain brand logo at it. After browsing through the several online shops, I found one at Ebay. I decided to contact the seller and asked him for his range. Finally I decided to buy a box made of teak.
I paid 20€ for a hand made, solid, wooden snuff box, made of teak. It has a special mechanism which was invented by the producer himself. When pouring snuff, you push a wooden pin to release a small hole. If you want to refill the box you push the pin after it lets you detach the top of the box. It's easy to use and good for carrying it in your pocket. Of course, it is not air-tight which means you should only put snuff for a day in it. The box is slightly oiled with harmless teak oil from the outside. It carries the number 3611. 3 stands for the kind of wood used, 6 for the year 2006 when manufactured and 11 for the eleventh box made of teak.
I hope the picture help to understand my messy description.
