    now THERE'S something that gets the job done. the bottle's pretty cool too!



    Agreed, Im a huge fan of Hendricks, although its not always the easiest to find in a store or a bar. Another really nice alternative is Reisetbauer Blue Gin, which is probably even harder to come across though.

    As for pens, in my mind you cant beat the Uniball Gel RT Micro. It is a SUPER smooth writing pen if you like a very fine tip, it is .38mm.

    Waiter-style bottle opener.

    Great, if you could find one properly engineered and crafted.


    Ever since picking up a Pulltex at my local wine store, I have thrown every other corkscrew out.

    For pens, I usually rock whatever is my current favorite from the supply closet.
    We have (or had) those onyx pens but they aren't my favorite. Right now I am using

    and

    in green (I like this one better, but we only have them in green right now)

    Thank you. You don't have a favorite wine bottle opener to contribute?

    I have one just like that. Very handy.

    These have been around for a long, long time. Way before Ikea started making their own version.

    I prefer peeling and slices the apples myself. Mandolins on the other hand are VERY handy.

    A proper IPS panel LCD Monitor is essential. I find myself hating the monitors at work more and more....

    +1 to the Pulltex corkscrew.

    A quality cordless drill; I use Dewalt but Ryobi is decent for the much lower price. Comes in handy a lot around the house/apartment.

    Many years ago the NYTimes interviewed a wide range of designers. They asked all of them, "What do you wish you had designed", I recall the paper clip and Levis as my two favorite answers.
