For many people, the perfect place involves at least one room with a view. Being able to look down on the bustling city below, or out at the expansive countryside is great and all, but sooner or later you’re going to want to dim the natural light pouring in from that big ball of fire in the sky. You could go with traditional blinds or curtains because they work, but they don’t do much more than that. If you want something that does its job and looks good in the process, you want these Better View perforated black out blinds from designer Elina Aalto. Instead of just blacking out all possible light, the blinds display views from Paris, Tokyo, Helsinki, Stockholm or Berlin by using perforations to change the light from outside into a lit up cityscape.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
