  • Pencil Dice: Pencils You Can Gamble With

    Pencil Dice: Pencils You Can Gamble With

    In my many years as an old-timey con artist and huckster I have sought to find some manner of practical usage for my pocket full of dice.

    Mechanical pencils are considered a basic upgrade over the standard pencil by many, but they can still break down over time, particularly when they’re made out of cheap plastic as they so often are. Enter Nicholas Hemingway, who brought new life to the mechanical pencil game with the Mark I, and is now back with […]

    ZeroHour Apex Tactical Pen With Tungsten Tip

    A “tactical pen” kind of sounds like a pen you might use in combat situations, but the people at ZeroHour probably don’t intend for their ZeroHour Apex tactical pen to be jammed through any lower-jaws—except in cases of absolute self-defense, of course. Instead, the ZeroHour Apex is a pen outfitted with enough functions to make […]

    SCALE Retractable Roller Ball Pen by Shigeru Ban

    I never thought about it before, but architects must always be scrambling for pens, what with all the compasses and protractors and levels and other architectural stuff jamming up their pockets all the time. Japanese architect Shigeru Ban must agree with me, because he designed the SCALE Retractable Roller Ball as both a pen and an […]
