What Makes A Grail?

There are exactly four criteria that every martini glass must meet before being dubbed a "Tini Grail":

#1: Must be cool - this is totally subjective, I realize, but the glass has to make me want a martini or it's out. I'd rather drink a beer than insult the sacred nectar of a martini with a horrible glass.
#2: Must handle nicely - every glass we carry will have a good feel when a drink is poured. You wouldn't believe some of the gratuitous designs out there that make the martini almost impossible to drink. So none of those.

#3: Must have a stem - a martini glass without a nice stem is a jar, and I won't be carrying jars. It can be a thick stem, thin stem, colorful or not. But every glass must conform at least vaguely to the beautiful iconic structure of a "martini glass."
#4: Must be tasteful, not trite - it's a slippery slope, I've found, between classy/awesome and trite/cheesy. My goal is to stay as far as I can throw a large olive away from the latter.

      It's why we search far and wide for just the right glasses at Tini Grails. And by the way I personally experience every glass before it goes into the store. One of the job's perks.

      And here's a fancy graphic with all of the above:
