SILCA is a brand founded outside of Milan, Italy, almost a century ago (1917, to be precise). As of 2013, that made SILCA the oldest company in the bicycle industry to have been continually owned by the same family. That same year, the grandson of the founder sold the company to Joshua Poertner, who had over a decade of experience at Zipp and a desire to take the brand to new heights. One of their newest releases is a toolkit, the HX-One, that’s as functional as anything from Snap-on and as pretty as anything you’d find at the MoMA Store. Each of the pieces in the kit starts with S-2 Tool Steel before getting coated with thin-dense chrome and then spray coated with a textured polymer for maximum grip and control. You also get a proprietary magnetic adapter to turn the hex key into a 1/4″ socket drive. This might be the best looking tool kit we’ve ever seen.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
