booq-ipad-2-case

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.

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.
