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.

Check out this article on the National Geographic website about Mammoth Ivory Tusks.

The computerized art critic. There is now a gadget to judge the quality of ones art. I ask, is this really possible to do? In a world where individual taste is priceless, machines may be replacing our personal buds.

Art-O-Meter

Evaluating Art (So You Don’t Have To)

In collaboration with Steve Helsing

Art-O-Meter is a device that measures the quality of an art piece. It bases its evaluation on the amount of time that people spend in front of an artwork compared to the total time of exhibition. The measurements are graphically represented by comments and a 5-star rating system.

Without the interaction of a viewer, the Art-O-Meter will register time like a regular clock. However, when a user enters the area covered by its motion sensor, a second timer is triggered and it will count time as the viewer observes the artwork.

PRESS COMMUNIQUE via WHY Yachts

WHY, Wally Hermès Yachts: a new art of living on the sea is born.

Ancona, Italy. September 22, 2009. WHY, Wally Hermès Yachts, today unveils a revolutionary approach to cruising in motor yachts with the presentation of a full size model of its first born, an innovative 58 metre-long 38 metre-wide yacht, in Ancona’s shipyard.

Wally Hermès Yachts: a joint-venture.

WHY is the result of the joint-venture signed in June 2008 between Hermès and Wally, to develop a new type of motor yacht redefining the art of living on the sea. The iconic Parisian house and the iconic Monaco yacht brand formed an equal partnership whereby each company is fully involved in all aspects of the conception and design of each project.

Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Artistic Director of Hermès says : “When we met, in autumn 2007, Luca Bassani Antivari, President of Wally had thought about asking Hermès to accessorise the interior of one of his boats. I was impressed by the daring of his projects. My instinct was to get on board with him and go and seek out new territories in yacht design, but I had no interest in speed.”

Luca Bassani Antivari explains: “What I’ve always liked about Hermès, aside from its intrinsic quality, is its audacity and radicalism; its desire to go beyond trends, to make no compromises and to maintain the authenticity of the house. Wally shares the same values, ‘Hermès-on-Land’, ‘Wally-on-Sea’: inevitably our paths had to cross.”

WHY 58×38

The common values of the two brands have led to a first yacht that offers an unparalleled living space at sea.

WHY was developed to give life to this concept assembling a team of dedicated talents in design, engineering, and naval architecture.

Then the tried and tested Norwegian Ramform hull characterised by exceptional and unprecedented stability and volume and spotted by Luca Bassani Antivari, revealed itself as the ideal choice to be adapted to the WHY 58×38 project.

Following this unique adaptation, the decks and the interiors were developed in accordance with the fundamental credo of WHY, ‘form-equals-function’. Thus were born other innovations in the world of mega yachts: patios generously flooding the interior with natural light, photovoltaic panels on the glass hull sides, as well as on the roof opening, like Venetian blinds, a 25 metre-long forward end swimming pool, and a 36-metre aft deck beach.

WHY 58×38 offers comfort, privacy, stability, space, independence and sustainability.
