black-pencils-dots

How many times have you been jotting down notes when out of nowhere, your pencil flies out of your hand? Countless, right? Okay, so you might not need grip dots to keep your pencil in check, but that doesn’t change the fact that these Design Pencils from Faber-Castell look mighty sharp. The graphite pencils from the revered brand feature B lead and an ergonomic triangular shape with a soft-grip zone. At 12 for $30, they aren’t the cheapest writing instruments out there, but they look better than most (and won’t spontaneously shoot from your hand).

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
