Slice Box Cutter

Slice Box Cutter

If you're anything like us, you'll be doing as much of your holiday shopping as possible online — and that means lots and lots of boxes. To get all of those open with minimal effort and permanent scarring, we suggest the Slice Box Cutter ($20). A 2011 red dot Design Award Winner, the Slice sports a hand-sharpened, retractable, adjustable-length ceramic blade with a rounded tip to safely and quickly cut through tape and cardboard — but hopefully not the contents — while the unique design ensures your hand stays out of the way.

  • HP Limited Edition Calculator

    You don't have to be that old to remember when calculators were cool — and now you can celebrate that bygone era with an HP Limited Edition Calculator ($80). While its landscape layout is slightly less revolutionary than it was 30 years ago when it launched, the 12c — its official name — is still a handsomely retro tool featuring a 10 character display, a RPN entry-system logic, over 120 built-in functions, 20 memory registers, a unique production number laser-etched on the back, a special, limited-edition gift box, and, for the financial gurus in the crowd, is good for use in CFP and CFA certification exams.

  • Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil

    When you're in a creative groove, you don't need anything breaking your flow — and that goes double for your writing utensil. The Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil ($33) is a Japan-only dream with a nearly-perfect weight and feel, an all metal brass body with knurled grip and lead grade indicator, a fixed 4 mm sleeve, a clip, and an eraser under the top cap. Also available in silver.
