Magic Circle

Magic Circle

W.R. Case and Sons has been around for a long time in the knife business, and have done so by knowing when to adapt and when to stick to their guns. But they weren’t always the only big dogs in the neighborhood. There was a time when they were competing with several other related companies […]

Going Whole Hog

Going Whole Hog

I’ve always admired a bike rider. I’ve never had the guts for it myself, being that close to pavement buzzing under you at anything above thirty miles an hour seems like an invitation to terror, if you ask me. But I’ll freely say the designs and look of a classic motorcycle is something to behold. […]

Loafing Around

While the idea of sliced bread wasn’t a revolutionary concept—John Montagu, also known as the aptly-named 4th Earl of Sandwich, was eating the things during his poker games all the […]
