Worther-Pencils

If anyone was going to redesign the way we think about writing instruments, it was going to be the Germans. Pencils don’t need to be a simple tube of wood filled with “lead” and capped with an ugly pink eraser that will just inevitably break off. Based on what Gerhard Wörther came up with, pencils can actually be well-designed, good-looking, precision instruments of getting your point across. For almost three decades, Wörther has been making these luxury class pencils and it shows in their quality and clean lines. Available in plastic, aluminum and regionally sourced wood, each hexagonal masterpiece is as much a pleasure to use as it is to look at on your desk. The Mercedes-Benz of pencils is a fitting description.

 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.
