Deep down in every man lies a kind of instinct, a sense perhaps, for what makes him a man. It's a tough sensation to articulate but we feel it when we pick up something of permanence with our hands, feel the way it was thoughtfully crafted, and then put it to use as intended. It's the weight of your Grandfather's gardening shovel, the smell of your Dad's baseball glove, or clink of a perfect ice cube in an etched whisky tumbler. Something just feels right, and damnit you deserve to feel that in everything you own.
We've compiled a list of those objects and tools that we think stands up to that intangible test, linking out to our recommendations where appropriate. If you've got recommendations of your own, please let us know in the comments below.
