One thing we’d love to see return from the ashes is the corner butcher shop (oh, and also Bonkers candy, but that is a separate topic).  Sure, some still exist but they have slowly been pushed out by cheap prepackaged supermarket red dot specials.  With The Cook And The Butcher you get over 100 great recipes designed around the teachings of mater butchers and steak-house chefs across the country.  What we are digging most about this book are the “Notes From The Butcher” that are interspersed throughout and are like having a guy in blood-stained whites and a cleaver in hand right there with you.  Not only will you be able to serve up delicious beef, pork, lamb and veal dishes but you’ll gain some knowledge in the process which, as men, we should always strive for.

Whether you’re trying to refine your archery skills or just get a leg up on the competition when it comes to office warfare, the BB Sniper mini crossbow from Uncommon Carry will fit the bill. Handmade out of stainless steel and equipped with a self-loading chamber, the BB Sniper is designed to hurl projectiles like toothpicks or mini BBs with surprising accuracy at a range of about 30-50 feet. Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
