Bought this as a gift for my husband as an anniversary present... When it arrived the pen holder itself just looks rusty and old... the dial was covered in a dark dust-like film that leaves black smudges on your fingers and clothes... I e-mailed Uncommon Goods to complain and this is the response I get, "The item has been reviewed by 10 customers, all of whom love the piece, and give no
indication that it is consistent with the one you received." ....smug smug smug are they trying to make me feel guilty? Unreal.

              This was a father's day gift for my husband. We have several GBGs in the garden and I knew he would appreciate the humor. I did not have any issues with the quality as others have commented. It was really well made, the words were all quite clear.

                Such a cool product! Noticed the other reviews mentioned that the engraving was hard to read, and the second picture shows rather cheap looking plaques as labels. Almost didn't buy this because of that, but took a chance - and the one I got has fabulously legible engraving, no plaques. Really pleased!!

                  The word cannot be read. In the photo on web and in catalog they are clearly legible. I returned the first one assuming this was a defect but the second has the same flaw. The critters are funny of course, but the wit of this sculpture is gone without the lettering. Great concept poorly executed

                    Bought as a gift so I did not open the lovely box the spinner arrived in. Unfortunately the spinner did not match the packaging. When the gift was opened we saw that the base plate was badly finished with machining burrs on the wheel and the cute decision labels on the wheel were missing letters. The mechanism seemed solid, no squeaks or wobbles, and the sculptures were secure so the recipient declined to return the gift but I was very disappointed in the quality.

                        My husband and I had our 11th anniversary. The suggested ideas for an 11th anniverisary is steel. I wanted something unique for my husband and this made the cut! He loves it and proudly displays it on his desk. We also purchased the Gnome-Be-Gone Fisherman. I purchased both as a set for him. Vey unique products!
