1.0 out of 5 stars pretty useless as a shot measure., 17 Mar. 2014
This review is from: WMF Loft Bar Measure (Kitchen & Home)
Looks good but that's about all, as the size of the shot is pretty useless, 20 ml and 40 ml ? Not sure if these are USA sizes but here in the UK a standard shot measure is 25 ml, and in some pubs 35 ml and so a double would be 50 ml and 70 ml. So if your trying to make cocktails it's neither one or the other.

The Weights and Measures Act of 1963 made it illegal in Britain for businesses to give short weights or short measures to consumers. Before this there was no legislation, only guidelines as to the correct weight of an alcoholic spirit measure, and if spirit measures or optics were used, they required a government stamp to certify that the measure was accurate. The 1963 Act formalized the legal measures by which spirits and other alcoholic beverages should be dispensed, namely 1/4 gill (35.5 ml), 1/5 gill (28.4 ml) or 1/6 gill (23.7 ml) although this has now been replaced by 25ml and 35ml for single measures with landlords being able to decide which quantities they dispense.

The legal capacity for thimble measures is 25ml or 35ml for single spirits and 50ml or 70ml for double spirit measures. Either capacity can be used, the difference being caused by historically larger measures being used in Scotland. Thimble measures also used in 175ml and 250ml volumes for measuring wine. Although government stamped for the correct volume, the thimble measure does rely on the user measuring the spirit out manually into the thimble.
