bookofjoe World Exclusive®™©: Katana Bookends

Katana Bookends by Mustard-with books angle copy

Just in from Jude Kilama at justmustard.com, the following:

We're about to launch a new product — Katana Bookends - and thought you should be one of the first to know.

Designing products for people as elusive as Ninjas is tricky — we had to draw on what we've learned of them from popular culture, which is that they can sneak, leap, slice, throw things, and hover. We can only assume they achieve this broad skillset from reading LOTS of self-help books, therefore any self-respecting ninjitsu master would do well to have a have a set of bookends.

In the style of a Katana sword, they hem in your favourite titles and brilliantly look like you've impaled all of literature with your mighty (metaphorical) knowledge.

Available in March: $30 here.


Yes: They will sell out quickly once they become available.

No: When you decide in December to get them for someone and email me for help, I will not put in a good word for you with Jude.

Think like an anesthesiologist: DO IT NOW (or in this case, March 1 at the stroke of midnight).

Fair warning.

Samurai used, and made popular the Katana. Ninja popularized the Ninja To, the straight version. That being said, these are really cool bookends for any sword enthusiast. Most of Ninjitsu doesn't really deal with swordsmanship... Kendo, and Iaido are more the kinds of arts that you were looking for. I really mostly was writing to inquire as to how the bookends work, though.
