Kniven is a classic nautical knife, made by the German manufacturer Otter-Messer for Blixt & Dunder in a limited run of just 60 knives. Kniven sold out in less than tree weeks.
A new baby is naturally the focus of its parents attention, and over the first few months millions of questions will surface. One of them is “what is my baby seeing?”. We have tried to answer that question by building a simple and user-friendly app which lets you simulate* what your child sees during its first year of life. What Do You See was designed by us at Blixt & Dunder based on an idea from our friends at V.32 and the app was coded by Applied Phasor.
Ever wondered how your newborn sees the world? Well, now there’s an app for that.

It takes a person of strong character to put on a bow tie for the first time. With the bow tie around one’s neck you will join the ranks of some of the world’s most opinionated people and you risk being looked upon as a snob, someone who is trying to make a statement, someone who revels in the attention.
There is nothing wrong with being the focus of people’s attention, but make sure you wear a stylish bow tie made out 100% silk.
