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.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
