The-X-Pen

At this point, it’s safe to say if we had a single ounce of CAD in our design wheelhouse we would dedicate ourselves to creating pens solely for Kickstarter campaigns. Unfortunately, we don’t (yet), so we’re going to stick to all of the other Kickstarter pen campaigns out there in the meantime. Like, for instance, The X-Pen. Machined locally in the US out of 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, and designed by two UC Berkeley alums, The X-Pen isn’t your average Kickstarter pen. It’s not rollerball, it’s not fountain and, most importantly, it doesn’t take the Hi-Tec-C refill. This one is felt tip. Outside of the delivery mechanism, it’s also got a magnetic cap, a perfectly sized 4 inch stature and a machine set screw to hold the ink in place. In other words, it’s one more pen to add to the ever-growing collection.

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.
