  • Fountain Pen Resurgence

    Fountain pens have long been in existence; in fact, skilled writers have used them for more than 5,000 years. Archaeologists have discovered early fountain pens that date back to the 10th century and even earlier. However, it wasn’t until the1800s that a large number of inventors began patenting their fountain pen designs.

    Throughout time, fountain pens have evolved, and while some may believe that this mode of writing is outdated, fountain pens prove to remain popular worldwide. According to a 2012 article by the BBC, Amazon fountain pen sales doubled in 2012, when compared with the same period in 2011.

    With this surge in fountain pen sales, designs have become more varied and intricate. Several pen makers, such as Aurora and Parker, cater their designs to female and adolescent fountain pen enthusiasts.

    The BBC article asserts several theories as to why fountain pens have seen resurgence in popularity. One reason may be due to the fact that fountain pens are now seen as becoming more of a luxury accessory than a writing tool for some people who collect them. Another factor may be that people relish returning to solid, traditional objects to make sense of a difficult and complex world.

    Pen shows are also helping to keep fountain pen enthusiasts engaged. Pen shows throughout the US occur in cities such as Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Xezo is currently planning on participating in various trade shows in 2015… stayed tuned for more information!

    Xezo currently manufactures two distinct styles of fountain nibs; both are German-crafted.  The Xezo standard medium-line fountain nib is bi-colored and contains 18K gold plating. In addition to fountain nibs being available for the Maestro, Legionnaire, Freelancer, Raptor and Phantom series, these fountain nibs will soon be available for the Incognito LG, Architect and new Golden Gate series. Additionally, Xezo manufacturers a solid 18K fine-line fountain nib which is currently available for the Maestro series of pens.

  • Sport Sunglasses

    It’s summer time… which means more people are able to enjoy the great outdoors. Many people choose to protect their eyes by wearing sunglasses while outdoors. An alternative to traditional fashion sunglasses are sport sunglasses.

    Sport sunglasses are becoming increasingly popular for a variety of reasons. Sport sunglasses can not only provide better optical quality and sport performance, but can also be equally as stylish. While well-known brands such as Oakley and Smith have long been selling sport sunglasses, luxury brands such as Gucci have also ventured into producing sport sunglasses.

    The main way that sport sunglasses differ from traditional sunglasses is the way sport sunglasses seek to improve optical quality. Sport sunglasses focus on improving vision by reducing certain wavelengths into the eye, leading to less sensitivity. Additionally, sport sunglasses diminish glare by using polarized and often times, polycarbonate lenses. Some models of sports sunglasses lenses are also able to be switched out with prescription lenses, allowing for wear outside of sport activities.

    In addition to the optical quality which sport sunglasses aim to improve, they also seek to be lightweight and are made with materials such as polyamide and nylon, which are lightweight, yet able to handle a multitude of outdoor environments.  All of these factors combined may give athletes better performance.

    Xezo is pleased to announce that it has produced its own Air Commando and Incognito series of sport sunglasses made of 100% pure titanium. The Air Commando series is fitted with anti-reflection mirror-coated lenses, while the Incognito series features a larger frame and wider lens coverage than the Air Commando series. In addition, the new Incognito series features a proprietary semi-gloss finish on the frame in unique brush coffee and charcoal finishes. Both of these series will be available for sale beginning in Fall 2014.

  • The Best Sunglasses for You

    Sunglasses are one of the most important accessories in modern day lives of both men and women. They should be - they are incredibly important in protecting our eyes from harmful UV rays that destroy the precious cells of the lens. Once these cells are damaged, there is no going back as damage to the lens is irreversible.

    When picking out sunglasses, you will probably take a couple of things into consideration. First, the style of sunglasses will likely be on the top of many people’s lists. Second, and more importantly, is the level of protection. Let’s look at the level of protection first.

    The level of protection is important because proper protection can prevent a whole host of problems. The damage caused to the lens of the eye can eventually lead to the development of cataracts. Cataracts require surgical removal. Another condition that can develop is macular degeneration, which is caused by damage to the retina of the eye. Macular degeneration can lead to poor eyesight, partial blindness, and in some extreme cases complete blindness. Continue reading

  • Genuine Leather

    Natural leather is without a doubt one of the most in demand materials known to humankind. It is natural, comfortable, and always in style. It can be made into almost anything; shoes, clothes, bags, and furniture, just to name a few. The better quality the leather, the more expensive it is.

    There is more to leather than you might think. There are two general classifications of genuine leather; top/full-grain leather, which is closest to the upper surface of the animal’s skin and split leather, which is the lower level of the animal’s skin. This is a simple explanation but, there are, in fact, more detailed descriptions and layers of leather in between. Obviously, the top-grain leather is the more desirable and luxurious type of leather, as it appears more natural and is far more durable than split leather. Continue reading
