With rooftop gardens popping up in Brooklyn and big-name chefs touting their locally grown produce, gardening is enjoying a bit of a guy-friendly rebirth of sorts.  Despite being dominated by the likes of Martha Stewart and fuchsia-shaded kneeling pads for the last few decades, gardening is – and always was – a manly undertaking.  Want proof?  Check out these Antique English D-Handle Garden Forks and Spades.  These are tools of men who dripped dehydrated sweat while harvesting crops for their family’s dinner tables.  Each fork and spade offered here is unique and selected for their individual quality and appeal though all do feature the D-handle pictured.  Even if you aren’t taking them out to some beds you have in the backyard they work well at counteracting the take-out menus you have hanging on the fridge.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
