Lamy’s Safari Charcoal Collection (you get to pick between a rollerball pen, ballpoint pen or mechanical pencil) isn’t a collection of the nicest writing implements you’ll ever own, but they’re the note-taking instruments you’ll have on you at all times. Each of the indispensable tools is made of matte charcoal ABS plastic with a comfort molded grip and a flexible brass clip for your pocket or bag. Unlike those other “nice” pens and pencils, these start at $25, can take a beating, won’t get you angry if you lose them and, most importantly, they look really good. In our minds, that’s better than being considered “nice.”

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
