This box is made of good quality wood and makes a great presentation box. However, I wasn't overjoyed with the foam in the bottom that holds the pens and pencil. I purchased a little bit of red velvet, removed the foam piece, wrapped it and put the foam back in the box. This really made the gift 100% in my eyes but I'm pretty picky. The writing utensils are very nice, heavy yet balanced to make them comfortable to use. The engraving gave it a nice personal touch. I was so pleased to find an item with the United States Marine Corps emblem. Please note: In the examples given online, the word Corps is misspelled. The "s" is missing. It is not "Corp".
ProsBeautiful piece, easy to personalize, great way to honor a loved one. Looks great on my daughter's desk.
ConsThe foam tray doesn't live up to the quality of the piece. Downgrades the exquisite factor.
