RCS Likes: Col. Littleton

I can’t remember exactly how I was introduced to Col. Littleton’s products – I think it was at a specialty store in Atlanta that displayed their engraved knives and money clips. It was years ago, and I have been a fan ever since. I always look forward to their catalog, and enjoy their website. It has a ‘general store’ feel; very Americana. They are based out of Lynnville, TN, and just opened a retail store in Nashville:

I have a few Col. Littleton products, and use them all. They are the type of products that feel like they will last forever…not only that, but as they age, they get ‘better’.
a. #7 Money Clip – a birthday gift last year. Engraved wtih ‘JRS’.
b. Front Pocket Wallet (in brown cowhide) – I had the honor of serving as my brother’s best man in his wedding a few years ago. He was stumped on what to get the groomsmen, so I suggested these wallets personalized for each of the guys. They were a huge hit. To my understanding, most are still in use.
c. #2 Silver Buckle – a gift from the in-laws a couple Christmases ago. Engraved with ‘JRS’.

‘When I went into business, I wanted to make things that last and become more
meaningful as time goes by.’ – Col. Littleton

There are quite a few other items I’ve got my eye on:
4. #2 Yukon Knife – for my pocket
5. #34 ‘The Deacon’ Knife – for my desk

    Their prices make me wince most of the time, but it to not like just about everything they sell.

    The pocket journal is one of the best gifts I've ever received. Christmas is nearly upon us; start dropping hints now!

    The product video for that wallet is amazing. "Holds all your Zaxby's free chicken cards…" Makes me miss Clemson even more. The iPhone pocket journal is pretty sharp as well.
