You’ve probably noticed I’ve undergone a bit of a transformation lately. I’m make a conscious effort to stop buying things made in China.

Every piece selected here is made in the USA.If we’re going to start writing drunk, there’s no better place to start then with the Jacob Bromwell Vermonter Flask.

Your drunk ass should go with the Fisher Astronaut pen; it writes from any angle which is ideal for when you wake up in a ditch somewhere. You’ll probably need some paper too.

This unique flask has been specially designed to accommodate the needs of those who use and rely on their flasks on a regular basis.
Fisher Space AG7 Original Astronaut Space Pen
This is the original Fisher Space Pen that was used on the Apollo 7 space mission in 1968 after 2 years of testing by NASA and has been used on all manned space flights since then. The design and construction of this pen has not changed in 36 years. The pen you buy today is exactly the same as the one taken to the moon in 1969. It is a heavy pen and the weight rests reassuringly in your hand as you write.
