John Currence is a Chef that’s won the James Beard award (as well as a host of others), been on Top Chef and opened a bunch of successful joints down south. But what we’re really most captivated about is this quote “I’m a flavor guy. I won’t bowl you over with subtlety, but I will fucking punch you in the mouth with flavor and surprise you in a place you won’t expect to be surprised.” This is exactly the guy we want writing a cookbook because it means we’ll actually use it. Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey is that book. 130 different recipes, organized into ten different cooking techniques and paired with a shitload of color photographs AND songs. That’s right, the cookbook that includes Deep South “Ramen,” Whole Grain Guinness Mustard and Kitchen Sink Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches has an entire Spotify playlist to go along with it. John, if you ever read this, let’s be friends.

Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
