General Bullet Proof Can (and yes, it will stop a bullet - a friend of mine tested it in this video). V2 Tobacco released their first accessory can this year, the Thunder Waterproof Can. Icetool, a company from Finland, also releases cans from time to time. I've wrote about their Slim Can and Portion/Lid Can in the past. In this article, I'm going to be talking about their redesign/new products - including new snus accessory cans, and a new line of Icetools that now come in aluminum.
BuySnus.com and run around 40$ USD.
The official product description for the Slim Can is, "Slim pocket size Icetool snus can. Keeps snus fresher, longer. Solid anodized aluminium. Replaceable seal. Fits a full container's worth of portion at half the size. Strong, lightweight, durable." On the box for the Slim Can, Icetool describes it as, "Keeps snus fresher, longer. Solid anodized aluminum. Replaceable seal. Fits a container's worth of portion at half the size. Strong, lightweight, durable. Won't stop bullets, though. Sorry."
The official product description for the Full Size Can is, "Icetool box for portion snus. Manufactured in solid aluminum. Strong, light and durable with a anodized long lasting color." On the box for the Full Size Can, Icetool describes it as, "Solid anodized aluminum with replaceable seal. Fits more than a container's worth of portion. Strong, durable, lightweight. Keep your snus fresh and safe."
These cans are very sturdy, durable, and look great. I like the new design a lot more to the old one, these cans are very "bar worthy".
If you look at the picture - you'll notice different types of snus. I put Skruf Cranberry (Tranbar), General Long and Goteborg's Rape Slim. This is the main reason I enjoy these accessory cans. I'm on the road a lot and enjoy traveling - but I also like variety in my snus usage. I don't want to carry around 3-4 cans with me everywhere I go, so these cans come in handy. I can load up 24 portions of 3 types of snus and have a good variety and mix of product everywhere I go.
this article for a detailed review on Icetool including how to use them, clean them, and lubricate them. I also did a video series on Icetool that may be helpful to you as well if you're new to this product. This article will mainly talk about the new aluminum Icetool and differences between the Stainless and Aluminum products.
Icetool has added an aluminum Icetool to the Stainless Steel line. Stainless Steel usually runs about 41$ USD whereas Aluminum usually runs about 37$ USD.
Looking at product descriptions, the Stainless Steel Icetool is described as, "The original Icetool - stainless steel design portioner tool for loose snus. It helps users to form and place a pinch of snus of right size under your lip."
The Aluminum Icetool is described as "Aluminium Icetool is lighter and has the same superior quality as the original. Icetool is a tool for loose snus that helps users to form and place a pinch of snus of right size under your lip."
In conclusion, I've used Icetools for years. They come at a premium when it comes to price, but they're worth it. When it comes to the accessory cans - any snuser should own one if you like variety or you are on the go a lot and don't want to carry around a ton of snus cans. I've carried one with me for years, and definitely look forward to taking the champagne (gold) one out on the town.
