The good men at Forgetful Gentlemen make fine stationery that will give your correspondence an upgrade. Their letterpress printed card set contains 12 hand-printed cards for occasions like Birthday, Get Well, Love & Congratulations.

Where else do you find black chrome? You find it on some Leica cameras, maybe on a custom hotrod, but tools? This is new. These are Stanley sockets, so you know they’re bomber and have a lifetime warranty. In addition, the sizes, laser-etched into the black chrome, are easier to read. This finish is also more durable than regular chrome. Black is just better.
Military surplus has had a steady influence on fashion through the years, but these days it seems everything is a reproduction. Finding real vintage, military-issued garments and accessories is tough. The guys at the Inventory store hit the jackpot when they unearthed this lot of real Swedish Army belts. They are natural tanned leather and built to withstand the rigors of Scandinavian warfare. Genuine articles, as they say.
Another tablet? A note tablet. You just jot notes down on it, sketches, whatever. Delete the screen and start over when you want. It’s digital paper; doesn’t browse the web, doesn’t play games. It just takes the scraps of paper out of your loop. Now, think about all the Post-Its and To-Do lists you’ve written and tossed. It’s a lot. Technically, you don’t have to do that anymore.
No, it’s not a German Thrash Metal band, although the Hardcore Hammer definitely pounds out some heavy hits. This framing hammer is built to withstand the rigors of professional carpentry, while lasting forever. On a regular hammer, the waffle pattern of the hammer face wears down quickly reducing its ability to grip & sink nails. This design protects the waffle providing for years & years of perfectly pounded nails.
This hand-forged, German kitchen knife looks like it survived a nuclear blast or was dredged up from a shipwreck, but clearly the blade’s finish is perfectly precise. Hammered into shape from one molten chunk of steel, this knife has been stripped of all but the essentials. The maker’s mark is a grasshopper, a symbol of the Luneburg Black Forge.
NB’s 410 style is old school, yet looks fresh. It has a slimmer and lower profile than other vintage runners in the New Balance line and that’s a plus when you’re rocking slim jeans. Nobody wants big, bulky clown shoes.
Back in the day, most men carried a pocket knife. Nowadays, a smart phone, PDA or tablet is more the norm. If you’re stuck in the gulf between these two opposing worlds (as many of us are), we’ve found your knife. Victorinox, makers of the OG Swiss Army knife, have created a tool for the modern dude. It’s got a removable 4Gig USB drive, a retractable pen, an LED light & a nail file. It has a blade, too. So, it’s good for any unexpected action between your driveway and the office.
When morning show experts talk about the influences causing kids to go mental and commit terrific violence, they usually blame heavy metal music & video games like the newest chapter in the Dead Space saga. Horror survival games like this are strictly adult material. Using telekinesis to turn your body parts into deadly weapons, is not the type of stuff children can handle. That’s why this gory game is for mature users only. People like you.
