The Solid Brass Money Clip Is The Least Pretentious Money Clip Ever SHOP

For far too long, the money clip has been a stuffy and pretentious way to tote around your cash. This Solid Brass Money Clip lends a more rugged feel to the classic clip. Each is cut, tumbled, and bent by hand in Brooklyn and sports a tough machine shop appearance. All are made from solid brass, but the Black Oxide version offers up more of a gunmetal look that will fade with time and use and expose the brass underneath. It’s a more rugged way to carry your cash or cards. ... check it out

We've been inclined to say that they're bags that will last at least one lifetime on more than one occasion, but the fact of ... continue reading

Higonokami Mini Knife SHOP

The higonokami knife was originally made in Japan starting in the late 1800s and is characterized by its lack of a locking mechanism and simple, protruding tang. The style was exceedingly popular in Japan until 1961 when blades were banned. Still, a few craftsmen carry on the tradition today. This mini version is ideal for tossing on your keychain or on a necklace or lanyard. The small, handmade blade will always be at your side and ready for the task at hand. ... check it out

While people have been busy inventing hands-free and more effective umbrellas for some time now, they've been ignoring one of the most basic problems: the umbrella has to be ever so perfectly propped up in the corner when you're not using it.
