This month I received the Frontier Bespoke Post box. I love this subscription box company! It has a wide of variety of products in every mouth. This #BoxOfAwesome is based on a strong lineup of products that have stood the test of time.
So, what's in my Frontier box?
Kaweco Fountain Pen / With 6 Refills
Opinel KnifeMachine Era Co. Bottle Opener
No. 8 Pocket Knife, 3.25" Stainless Steel Blade with an Oak Handle, Opinel This isn't just a knife -- it's a damn legend. Manufactured since 1890 in the small town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, this pocket knife has become a profound icon of French design and utility. Need proof? Pablo Picasso used it to carve his sculptures, and lots of legendary explorers never left home without one. And aside from being a MoMA-endorsed design masterpiece, it's got a resilient oak handle, stainless steel blade, and a unique locking collar to keep the blade in place and your fingers intact.
The Opinel knife was one of my favorite items! The reason I wanted this box. The locking collar is the best part of the knife to me. It allows for safety around children, which you will want! Just lock it in place after using it, and you will not have to worry (as much). Plus, you can lock it while the blade is out too. The blade is very sharp.
Black Sport Fountain Pen with Pocket Clip & Blue Cartridge Refills, Kaweco Unlike cheap ballpoints, this pen has got old-school appeal with keen modern design. And when we say “old-school appeal,” we mean it: Kaweco’s been in the business since 1883 and packs all that history into a sharp contemporary rendition. They're crafted from high-quality plastic, are compact when capped (4.1 inches), but just right when posted (5.3 inches), and come with a screw-on cap for extra security, a 23KT gold plated stainless steel, and a medium-sized nib with an iridium tip. Learn how to use it well and your handwriting will be smooth and full, unlike the near-illegible scratches you get with a disposable pen. We've even thrown in six ink cartridge refills, plus a gold pocket clip so you can keep it clipped into the pocket of your tailored suit.
The main reason I wanted this box so much was the Kaweco fountain pen. This pen is just perfect for your collection or everyday use. It writes better than a ballpoint when you get the nib just right! I can not get enough of it. Also, they sent 6 refill cartridges with the one already in the pen. These will last a while! You can buy more on Bespoke Post store for $3.
Godwin Cold-Pressed Steel Bottle Opener, Machine Era Co. You know what they say: "write drunk; edit sober." This'll help get you on your way to the former, at least, with a strong cold steel construction that's made start to finish in the U.S. It’s weighty enough to be damn near indestructible but light enough for your every day carry, and looks like a work of art: the gun-barrel-black finish and engraved artwork will outclass anything on your keyring.
The Machine Era Co. bottle opener is nice to. It would be great to add to any collection you might have. I love the whale design it has on it!
Black Soft Cover Notebook, 5" x 8.25”, Poppin Whether you’re a design-obsessed writer or are just tired of covering your desk with Post-It Notes, a reliable and minimal notebook is the perfect way to keep track of your brilliant ideas. This one has got got 192 ruled pages for all of your notes, along with with an interior pocket for loose paper and an elastic closure to keep it all secure. So you can write down all of your notes for the Great American Novel... or a grocery list while you're bored in your next meeting.
This notebook was really nice! It is similar to a journal. It will be great to write in with the fountain pen!
Bespoke Post is a great monthly box for any man or woman at that! But, is it worth the $45 or $55? I say yes! Or at least the Frontier box was to me. They claim the boxes are worth more than what you pay, but I'll leave it to you to decide. Also, you can skip any boxes that you don't want. If you forget to skip one, contact Bespoke, and they'll help you.
