Modern Fuel Machined Mechanical Pencil

Mechanical pencils are far better suited for EDC use than their wooden counterparts, but most are made of flimsy plastic. Modern Fuel has created their own take on the mechanical pencil, machining it out of solid metal. This precision-made pencil looks simple, but the attention to detail and substantial feel in hand set it apart from the rest. Each piece of the pencil seamlessly blends into each other, giving the illusion that it's a single piece of metal. Included with the pencil is a pocket clip for easy transport and a unique cork case to keep it safe in your pocket. If you’ve been looking to ditch disposable plastic pencils for something more permanent, consider picking one up from our friends at Huckberry via the link below!

Issara Minimalist Wallet

Overstuffing a wallet with cards and cash makes an unsightly mess that can weigh you down. Traditional bi-fold wallets make this all too easy, and the sheer amount of material that goes into their bulky construction makes matter worse. A minimalist wallet, like this one by Issara aims to solve both of these problems to slim down your carry. It can store your cards, cash, and receipts in a much thinner profile than a bifold. Issara focuses on quality beyond just the finished product to the entire production process. They source leather from eco-conscious tanneries and have their wallets hand crafted by skilled artisans in Indonesia. Issara gives their artisans salaries well above minimum wage and healthcare for them and their families. The result is an attractive, affordable wallet that supports the people who make them.

Mark Carson Ka La GMT

I almost entitled this article as an “Introducing” piece, but that would be a bit misleading, as the Mark Carson Ka La GMT has actually been available for some time – it’s just taken me awhile to get it bubbled up to where I had time to write about it. And, as long as I’m “fully disclosing” things, I’ll be up front and point out that the man behind Individual Design, Mark Carson, is also a team member over at aBlogtoWatch. That said, he did not even bring this one up with me to write about, it was just one that I ran across and was interested in. So, with that, let’s have a preview look at the Mark Carson Ka La GMT…
