cargo-containers

There are a lot of things we’d like to own if we could take a “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” ray-gun to them:  One of those top secret stealth helicopters that crashed during the bin Laden raid, a giraffe like the guy from the Direct TV commercial, the Statue of Liberty.  Just like designer Daniel Ballou however, we can find beauty in simplicity and functionality too.  That’s why we like his mini 8″ Cargo Containers that look like tiny versions of the ones you’d see at a shipyard.   Daniel would know seeing as how he’s from Long Beach, one of the busiest ports there is, just how to depict the normally large vessels.  Get ’em in blue & white or orange & gray and store, well, much smaller goods than you would in the regular 8 foot versions.  Just resist the urge to pinch their adorable little ceramic cheeks.

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.
