"These glasses are great. They look very nice. They are sturdy. They can go in the dishwasher and after about 2 years now the glass is still nice and clear.
They are very small. To me, that is a plus. Note that the 95ml volume applies only, just barely, if you fill it all the way to the rim. So for practical purposes, it holds max about 50ml gin or vodka stirred over ice, especially if you want to add an olive and carry the drink to the table. Again, I see that as an asset. Your drink stays fresh, and the glass looks and feels elegant.
Only downside, I can no longer stand the bathtub martinis you get served in bars."

"Originally, martini glasses were not that large, certainly not as large as they appear today (see, for example, The Thin Man). These martini glasses are therefore a welcome sight, providing a touch of elegance to a cocktail that has often suffered much abuse (see www.drinkingsociety.org). Their size allows the drink to stay cold over its period of being consumed (whereas larger glasses allow the drink to become luke warm). Plus you can fit more in your freezer (yes, martini glasses should be frozen)."
