The-Pen-Project-th

Buying pens on Kickstarter has become an addiction. We could probably start a whole new website just based on the pens talented designers the world over bring to production using funding acquired through Kickstarter. We’re not actually going to do that because it takes months for most of the people to make multiple trips to China. But not Ian Schon! Schon is making his pen in the good ol’ USA, but that’s only one of the awesome things about this pen. The Pen Project is all about making a pen that will be a permanent part of an EDC for Ian. It wasn’t developed just to bring a pen to market, or have a successful Kickstarter. It was about Schon making a great pen for himself. A great aluminum pen that takes a Fisher Space Pen cartridge and is just the right size. Where do we sign?

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
