blackwing-pencils

When it comes to office supplies it seems like every time we find a particular brand and style that we love it eventually ends up getting discontinued long before we have a chance to stock up for the rest of our lives. This is particularly true when it comes to pencils. If you use a pencil frequently you understand that there’s so much more to a pencil than just a chunk of wood, an eraser and “lead” (it hasn’t actually been lead in a long time for obvious reasons). Palomino’s Blackwing 602 pencils are a tribute to the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencils that famous writers were so fond of, and in many ways, it’s better than it’s predecessor. The metallic gray shaft comes with a black, brush style eraser and many believe this is the greatest pencil ever produced. After a 13 year production hiatus you can finally put Blackwing 602s back in your pencil cup.

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.
