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.
The Casper mattress is obsessively designed, but it gets covered up most of the time. The Casper sheets let you enjoy the same engineering and aesthetic. Made from super soft Supima cotton, they're crisp and comfortable but also breathable and durable. Fine details like labels on the short sides of the fitted sheet, envelope-closures on the pillowcases, and hidden openings on the corners of the duvet cover make even the process of putting them on a delight. Each set includes flat and fitted sheets, pillowcases, and you can add a duvet cover.

Designed by silversmithing legend Adrian Pallarols, the Leatherman Argentum Collection ($240-$40,000) takes the pocketable tool to new heights of
insanity fashion and elegance. Crafted from 925 Argentine sterling silver and 18K yellow gold, these are tools you most definitely will think twice about using. [via]
