Combining two products into one perfectly versatile piece of equipment isn’t just good design, it’s an American past time. We’ve perfected the skill of adding bottle openers, knives and bigger engines to everything from wallets to VW Beetles. Now Booq is adding notebooks to that list. With the Booqpaq, your as-of-yet-unreleased iPad2 can be sweetly cradled within Nappa leather available in a number of different colors – right next to a 50 sheet A5 notebook. It might not double as a stand, but along with the notebook it also gives you a pen slot and a place to hold the business cards that could win you free lunches. Booq also had enough foresight to design it ambidextrously so it doesn’t matter which one of your hands gets more of a work out, the Booqpad goes both ways. We’re definitely writing this off on the taxes.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
