Made in Boulder, Colorado, these plant-based waffles are an energy bar alternative, great for snacking in-between meals, after a workout, mid-trail or mid-ride. The modern take on a centuries-old tradition uses a brioche-based dough that cold-ferments overnight. It's then infused with pearl sugar imported from Belgium and finished in an authentic Liège waffle iron. They're best toasted in a conventional toaster, and you should never microwave them. If you're taking them on the go or you're just short on time, let them thaw for a few hours and enjoy at room temperature. They arrive partially frozen in environmentally friendly, compostable packaging and should be thrown in the freezer immediately. Available in original and gluten-free varieties.

Created in Solingen, Germany, using a single piece of stainless steel, this chef's knife is ready to be the most important tool in your kitchen. Taking visual cues from the world of traditional metal tools, Veark makes each knife using a drop forging process that leaves the CK01 with a unique pattern on the handle, so no two are alike — while the ergonomic open handle design allows you to hold the knife right at the balance point for an ideal grip. It also has an impressive 58 Rockwell hardness — allowing it to be sharper than most of its competitors, so it's equipped to handle just about any kitchen task you throw its way.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
