We’ve watched so many Kickstarter product videos for pens that they all blend together. Ideation sketches. Micrometer testing. Ink refill shots. Cap operation. Takumi is a pen from the new startup from Tronnovate Design Laboratory, and it has all those obligatory Kickstarter shots. It does everything a good Kickstarter pen should do. Write. Look good. Come in a variety of finishes like chrome, matte silver and bead-blasted black. It takes over fifty different refills. It has a minimal design. There are even cap options available in different styles. The project was already a winner before they revealed their secret weapon–an adjustable length head. Anywhere from 5mm to 15mm, you decide how long you want the head to be, which obviously adjusts the overall length of the pen as well. An internal clamp mechanism holds the head right where it belongs and, more importantly, what works best for you.

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.
