When the artist completes the collage, he seals the cutter’s beauty forever with several coats of clear varnish. To ensure a smooth and comfortable grip, he lightly sands and polishes the handles before attaching them to the Xi3 cutter body.

Fossil Mammoth
Ivory Cigar Cutter

Thousands of years ago, the early XIKAR man was measured not by the size of his cave or how hot his fire burned. Instead, his status was secured when triumphant during The Hunt. Victorious over a bison, bear or ancient mammoth, our early man earned his status as a result of the food, warmth and tools his successful hunt provided to the clan.

And so it is with today’s XIKAR man.

Your hunt is over for the most unique XIKAR offering to date: The Fossil Mammoth Ivory Cigar Cutter. Made with 10,000 year old mammoth’s tusk, this rare and remarkable tool is available for your enjoyment in an unlimited run. Each piece is unique, as fossil ivory offers an unusual mosaic of color derived from the surrounding soil, ice or plant life to which it was formed. No two are alike.

These masterpieces are certain to bring out the animal in all of us, so don’t let yours get away. Place your order early, and secure your place as a leader among men.

Called “a rolling reminder of what could happen when oil runs out,” and “a protest against an unsustainable lifestyle” by The New York Times, artist Jeremy Dean’s CEO Stagecoach is functional art, carved out of the gas-guzzling carcass of a Hummer H2.

With its tricked out interior – complete with LCD video screens and top-of-the-line audio system – to its chrome rims, grille and rails, this statement on wheels went from 300+ horsepower to two horsepower… getting pulled by a pair of Draft Horses through NY’s Central Park. Trading a wallet busting 9 MPG for a couple bails of hay and a trough of water.

Louis Moinet | Jurassic Tourbillon | Fossilized Dinosaur Bone Watch | $289,611 UDS.

Rare and old rocks on watches are quickly becoming one of Louis Moinet’s specialties. Until now it was mostly space rocks and old stones, but they are are getting into the fossil business. The operative term for this collection is “Time Explorator.” A strange sounding term that refers to a yet-to-be-shown display box with all sorts of cool stuff going on. It will contain a bunch of watches and other time travely features – and will otherwise be known as “the treasure chest of origins.”

So the Jurassic Tourbillon watch is just that – one of Louis Moinet’s standard Tourbillon timepieces with a dial made from actual fossilized dinosaur bone. Cool! The case is in white gold and 47mm wide with baguette cut diamonds on the bezel and lugs. Louis Moinet chose rust colored galuchat for the strap to make the style of the fossilized bone on the dial. Now I want a watch with T-Rex teeth styled hands. Look out for more Time Explorator watches and items soon.
