We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again–everything is cooler when it’s housed in stainless. Drinks, appliances and even pens are prettier, more fun to use and probably even more efficient when their clad in the shiny stuff. If you’re a fan of Hi-Tec-C or Uni-ball Signo DX pens (and who isn’t?) and you’re a designer, the PHX-1 Design Tool Set is tailormade for you. For $40, you get a stainless steel housing to hold one of the aforementioned pens and a hobby knife. You also get a sustainable bamboo wood storage case with a stainless steel lid that doubles as a ruler with seven different specs/measurements. It’s like the grown-up version of the Crayola Big Box.

 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.
