2018 MacBook Pro (15-inch)
Save $300The largest, fastest version of Apple’s 2018 MacBook Pro is at the lowest price we’ve seen it at — $300 off.
With a few exceptions, the 15.4-inch, 2.6GHz 6-core processor MacBook has sat steady at its $2,800 SRP since debuting on Amazon, the lowest price previously seen being just below $2,650. This specific model is the faster of the two 15-inch laptops, and possesses twice the storage (512GB). Remember to stock up on Thunderbolt adapters. — Will Price
Save 35%: While Parisian label A.P.C. is known for its minimalist clothing designs, the brand’s choice of fabrics shouldn’t be overlooked. A selection of available outerwear provides noteworthy examples: a classic chore coat is cut from Japanese denim, a sleek bomber is made from an Italian cotton-linen twill and a lightweight zip jacket features water-repellent Italian camouflage jacquard fabric. These quality materials, in hand with timeless designs, make for stylish outerwear well worth the price. But now at End, you can save 35 percent on a range of jackets and coats from A.P.C. There’s something for everyone including a vest, a chore coat and an overcoat, but with a discount like this, they won’t be around long. — John Zientek
GIR Silicone Spatulas
Save 50%>It physically pains me to watch friends and family struggle with enormous stainless steel spatulas in the kitchen. Try as you might, 24 inches of unbending steel is the ideal method for turning food in the home (use it on the grill exclusively). Instead, get one of these dirt cheap kitsch-y silicone ones from Brooklyn-based GIR (short for “Get it Right”).
You lose nothing but a bit of kitchen aesthetic in switching from steel to the GIR (hide it in a drawer), and you gain a tool that bends around the contours of the pans you cook with, is far more heat-resistant than steel, cleans easier than steel and has a manufacturer’s 100 percent lifetime guarantee. The spatula is a one piece design, too, meaning there are no nooks or crannies for water or food particles to hide in. And yes, it’s dishwasher-safe.
GIR spatulas are usually sold anywhere from $18 to $25, but today loads of color options are available for $11 on Amazon. — Will Price
Au Sabot Le Thiers Pocket Knife
Save 26%: France is the gravitational center of the culinary world, so it’s fitting that the country also produces some of the finest cutlery available. The focal point of that industry is Thiers, a town in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region that’s home to roughly one hundred knife making companies as well as a museum dedicated to the art and process. Thiers blades aren’t just for chefs though; knives of every kind are created there, including Au Sabot’s Le Thiers pocket knife, which is currently 26 percent off at Huckberry.
Au Sabot’s ode to Thiers is a handsome folding knife with a 3.5-inch blade made of carbon steel that’s available with handles made of hardwoods like rosewood and olive as well as more exotic materials like the horn of African buffalo. The knife’s form was developed by the Confrerie du Couteau Le Thiers, which means “Brotherhood of the Thiers Knife,” during the nineties to pay homage to the town’s 600-year history crafting blades. Fifteen local masters worked over months to design the Le Theirs. Au Sabot makes its version by hand in its factory there and includes a fold-out corkscrew in the handle, which, as the French might say, is quite à-propos. — Tanner Bowden
