Fork-Knife Chopsticks

If you're a klutz when it comes to chopsticks, this might be a good alternative. It's a knife and fork set that interlocks to become a pair of spring-loaded chopsticks. Now, while this seems quite clever, I doubt that many people in a restaurant would congratulate you for bringing your own utensils, so perhaps this is more of a stay-at-home item. Made from reusable, dishwasher-safe plastic. Materials: nylon, rubber Fork: 7.6" ...Read more

Filson Cover Cloth Umbrella

I've always thought of the umbrella as a good example of our throw-away culture. After every rainstorm in the city, you'll be sure to find a blown-out, discarded umbrella on the street. A properly built umbrella is an investment in a product that won't fall apart and will guarantee to keep you dry for years to come, not just through the next rainy day. Bulletproof and hard-wearing workwear manufacturer Filson ...Read more

Eames: The Architect and the Painter

For those of us familiar with the husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames, their names bring images of bent ply furniture and films, the packed 901 studio, and the impressive Case Study house in Pacific Palisades. However, most of us certainly don't know a great deal about their personal lives or working habits. In Eames: The Architect and the Painter, the new documentary by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey, we ...Read more

Old Time Sling Shot

What do you get for someone that has everything? An old time slingshot, made from buckthorn branches, latex tubing, and a leather projectile pouch. I like that 'female adult supervision' is suggested in the description, though in no way do I assume adult females are any less likely to injure someone or something, on purpose or otherwise. Dimensions: about 11" x 4"-5" ...Read more
