The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Who needs to fight when you can just offer your enemy a swig from your hip flask, hidden away in a volume of “The Art of War” and sit down for a friendly chat? The pages of this beautiful book about ancient Chinese secrets have been carefully hollowed to snugly hold the flask. The hidden magnetic closure keeps it closed. The flask can be engraved with a personal message, quote or monogram. This would be a cool gift for a guy who’s into books, but also into drinking - so it could be a perfect groomsman’s gift!
