Recently there were customers who were questioning what Fred is made out of and how many glasses in the package.
There is one 2 oz. shot glass and the following describes what it is made out of:
Fred is actually a very specialized glass called borosilicate glass containing specialized components. In it's laboratory usage it contains around 80% silica, 13% boric oxide, 4% sodium oxide and around 3% aluminum oxide. You may possibly recognize one of it's famous brand names, Pyrex. This particular specimen is lighter than Pyrex and obviously has contents varied by its manufacturer. The box says is manufactured in China and their website says it is hand blown.
Borosilicate glass is resistant to shattering and normally breaks in large segments or simply cracks on impact. It is also resistant to chemical corrosion and extreme temperatures which is why it is used in laboratory work as well as kitchen containers.
The inventor of borosilicate glass was a German glassmaker named Otto Schott. He was prominent in the 19th century and succeeded in refining his invention around 1883 creating the Duran brand. Later around 1915 Corning Glassworks came out with the brand Pyrex for it's famous line of kitchen glassware.
Regardless of all this technical data you will find Fred looking you straight in the eye when you imbibe in your 2 oz. shot. Shortly after you will find all this information totally oblivious to your current circumstances. Here! Here!
I used them for myself and a friend too match our Crystal Skull decanter. And use them as a piece of conversational item
It’s really neat, and he’s always loved it. I don’t think it’s glass, but it feels thicker and nicer than plastic. Only thing to note is that it will break if you drop something heavy on it.
There's copy's of these Fred glasses for much cheaper but they are very low quality. Stick with these and don't waste your money on the others.
You WILL look so cool driving to work with this in your hand especially when you fill it with JD!
the down side!!!! the glass is extremely thin and will break so easily! You cant use this glass as your regular shot glass... after a couple shots and you get a buzz going you will drop it or fall down drunk and smash it and get cut and maybe even bleed to death or at the very least you would have to go to the hospital for surgery because the glass wont show up on the xray so they will have to probe around in the wound until they find all the little pieces of glass then all the follow up visits to the Dr because they didn't get all the pieces...But that's just me! I'm just sayin'... Drink till you pass out... but not with this glass in your hand!
Try the BIG RED SOLO CUP! its cheaper, holds more JD and it wont hurt you when you fall down on it!

Practically speaking, you can try to fill the glasses whith different beverages, different colors and different levels of transparency, you will not get the same effect, unless you swich off the rooms' lights and put a spot behind the glass.
The quality is not very good. The glass is made of two parts, fused together, but the junction is quite visible. I ordered two glasses and one of them is leaking in the top of the junction point.
