There is definitely an art to shaving with a straight razor. But, in the case of this razor from Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, the tool itself is the work of art. With a handle made of prehistoric woolly mammoth bone, these made-to-order straight razors also feature a miniature photograph, which is seen through a Stanhope lens built into the sheath. Hopefully all these artistic features don’t distract you from the task of shaving yourself without cutting your own throat.
Scandinavia is clean. We’re not just talking about their drinking water & air quality. Think of Swedish style: furniture, fashions, design. There is something brilliant about simplicity of form – like the Kånken backpack from Swedish outdoor brand, Fjällräven. Introduced in 1977, the pack retains its simple, vintage style, but now features a hidden padded laptop sleeve.
Sailor Jerry was the godfather of classic tattoo styling. Over the past 60 years, his artwork has been copied, co-opted and made it’s way permanently onto the skin of millions. His art can also be found on shirts, shoes, rum bottles and now, a set of playing cards. This official set of cards features classic flash art with a vintage patina for that old time flavor.
Simple objects with profound design appeal – that’s what the creations from the artist’s collective of Nonlinear are all about. This table is the perfect example.

The answer may be up for debate, but the table’s good looks are unquestionable.

Automobile paparazzi have spent the last 6 months doing surveillance at test tracks around the world, leaking images of the 2012 Nissan GT-R all over the web. Man…it looks good. Unfortunately, not a lot of performance specifics have leaked. What we do know – it features enhanced aerodynamics in the nose & rear and has shed some 350-pounds, making it leaner than its predecessor. But, the 3.8-liter twin turbo still packs nearly 500 horses, which is really heavy.
