Cleo Skribent Messograf Pen

Part multi-tool, part writing instrument, all German engineering. The Cleo Skribent Messograf Pen works great as a writing tool, accepting any Parker-style ballpoint or gel refills. But the chromium-plated brass body also serves as a metric screw thread scale, a tire tread depth scale, and as a 4-inch caliper that measures in both metric and inches. And not to worry, nervous pen-fiddlers — it still uses a standard click-to-open mechanism. [Scouted by Andrew]

  • Eco Highligther Pencils

    You drink from a reusable bottle. You recycle. You even compost. But yet you still use standard highlighters? Make the switch to these Eco Highligther Pencils ($9). Available in all your favorite highlighter colors — yellow, green, orange, pink, and blue — they contain no plastics, ink solvents, or volatile organic compounds, and can be sharpened using a jumbo sharpener. Oh, and they won't bleed through the page — something that few traditional highlighters can claim.

  • Johnny Cash Postage Stamp

    Let's face it: in an age of online account management, email, Skype, IM, and other methods of near-instant communication and commerce, no one really likes buying postage stamps. So if you have to, you might as well make them as cool as possible. This Johnny Cash Postage Stamp (about $0.50) should certainly qualify. Meant to resemble a 45 rpm record sleeve, the stamp features a black-and-white portrait of Cash taken in 1963 during a Frank Bez photo shoot for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. And it's a Forever stamp, so 20 years from now when stamps cost $10 a piece, you can use it and be all "In yo face!" to the local postmaster.
