Objects

Various old and interesting things I have around my desk that are special to me.

My fathers old pocket knife, from when he was a boy scout.

The hand=forged cast iron bottle opener my wife gave to me for my 30th birthday.  It’s a really good example of Japanese craftsmanship.

Old glasses from the 1940’s or there abouts, very nice etching over the entire frame.  May still be wearable after some TLC.

A straight razor I bought from John Tischler that looks rather noble, I think.

The razors beautifully aged case.

My grandfathers pocket watch.  Is there anything more aesthetically pleasing that one of these? Especially the old tarnished ones.
