I’ve got no use for an electric bicycle thing… but if I did? Oh man… This thing is rad.

Andre de Villiers Barlow Bone Slip

A classic gentleman’s folder with an aesthetic so nasty it could only come from the archives… This thing is expensive for a production knife, but damn man… It’s cool.

Erazor

High speed 6600rpm motor, ceramic blades that should last for a couple of years or so… and a battery that is good for a couple of months. If this thing works, it’s golden.

Opal 2 by GE

Read More

My wife has a thing for the ice that Sonic drive-ins use. So much so, that the ole diet Dr. Pepper monthly bill was starting to get out of hand. I decided to make a move.

This thing is $549 and gets mixed reviews. It’s too expensive and the chances of it last longer than a couple of years is probably pretty slim… But holy hell man – the ice this thing creates is absolutely perfect.

Everyone is jumping on the vintage/retro bandwagon these days. Even Casio has jumped in the game with this new digital. I dig it, but wonder about the quality given the price point.

I need this… It’s a stadium seat with a heating element and a lithium power source that provides up to 3hrs of run time at 113°F – perfect for all the high school football games I have to go to…

Jack White Does Other Shit…

I interviewed this guy once. I liked him… I also like his taste in music, but didn’t know he was a maker. He’s pretty good at that too.

Off topic, but details.

Summer Pocket Dump

Read More

I spent my summer restoring an old house on an island in the pacific. As such, I had a constant EDC… And this is it…

  1. Pioneer Matter BiFold. These things are really popular right now and I can see why… The design is fantastic in that this wallet can carry a ton of cards without getting bulky. Plus, it can carry a tad of cash as well. The ripstop material is very thin and feels incredible, but I wonder how durable it will be. So far, so good.
  2. Titatnium Folding Blade. I prefer utility blades over knives… and have fallen in love with these cheap Chinese folders.
  3. Sinn U1. The U1 is too big and bulky to be a daily watch in my opinion, but I was on an island and planned to do a lot of diving. As such, the U1 got the call… It’s my favorite dive watch in the world and it did fine out of the water as well.
