There’s a morbid irony that the device that’s ushering along the death of the printed page should be protected by a case that’s essentially a book. Perhaps we’ve watched one too many nature documentaries, but it’s a bit like one of those crazy sub-Saharan wasps that paralyzes some grub, eats it hollow, and lives inside it like some kind of insect camper home. Whoa, we are way off topic. Regardless of the parallels or lack thereof, Twelve South’s BookBook case is a super slick case. Classic style of a bygone era, stealthy outward appearance, and comfy reading ergonomics make it a great case for your iPad. It doubles as a stand as well, so you can prop it up and read youtube comments on it while laughing at the decline of the written word.
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.
