Some of our most popular posts have focused on how to do certain things.  We had:

So where do we go from here?  How to Apply to MI-6?  Tempting, but anyone with an addiction to alcohol or gambling is out – so that probobably cuts out half our readers.  So for now, something much safer.  How to Base Jump Off the Eiffel Tower.  Note – it is illegal without permission from Parisian Authorities… who can be contacted here.  Grab a Racer Accuracy Complete Parachute System here, then probably a good idea to head to the Snake River BASE Academy for four days of training by registering here. Reserve your Eiffel Tower tickets here so you aren’t stuck in line.  And you’re set.  (Parisian Permit Not Included) $5,500  BUY

Few things are more enjoyable than a steam or sauna and the Brits have something great on their hands with this one.  Beyond the physical and mental health benefits there are a small handful of companies in the world that have combined them into one.  The best we’ve found yet is Ideal with the Tris model.  The shower is incredible with 11 nozzles and 6 body jets on the side, flow control, foldable seat, and handheld spray.  The sauna matches it with built in hygrometer, 2 kilograms of volcanic stones, bucket and ladle made from Iroko wood, and digital time and temperature programming.  And then there is the steam room with an oil burner for aromatherapy, digital programming and the use of the shower to cool you off at the same time if needed.  Good god, we want one.  $20,000.

el casco cigarcutterIn Medeival times, Solingen, Germany was home to the best swordsmiths.  Today, 90% of German blades come from the town and they are some of the finest in the world. Not too far away, in the Basque region of Northern Spain,  is El Casco, a company who went from making revolvers to making individually numbered and manually assembled office supplies during the depression.  So when El Casco wanted to make a desktop Cigar Cutter worthy of it’s name, they chose the finest materials and Solingen blades.  And thus the El Casco Cigar Cutter was born.  A long way to come to cut cigars, but a rich history worthy of what is arguably the best cigar cutter money can buy.  You’ll have to leave this one in your will, because its sticking around.  $140.  BUY
