To us, a good pocket knife should be simple. No Mother of Pearl handles. No nail clippers. We just want a single blade that disappears into our pocket. Our current favorite is the Case Mini Blackhorn Knife ($18). Just 3 inches when closed, the knife has a lockback surgical steel blade and a Zytel handle that helps keep the weight to just 1 ounce. Case has been making knives in the USA for over a hundred years.
Another new classic from Design Within Reach. The Japanese Weeding Knife ($40) is a dynamic blade used to dig small holes, uproot weeds or pot small plants. It's serrated on one edge, smooth on the other, with measuring lines on one side. Perfect for gardening or cutting up fools.
Whether you prefer short sleeves or like to roll yours up, these G.H. Bass & Co. Button Down Shirts are versatile additions to your springtime wardrobe. Available in a variety of colors and styles, including classic gingham in a bold red, a striking green plaid, and double cloths in an ideal blend of cotton and linen. Dressing up or dressing down, paired with shorts or worn with jeans, they'll ensure you look your best.
