If you didn’t know, we have an official Art of Manliness online store where we sell useful and inspiring wares, along with items for showing off your AoM pride and spreading the good word of manliness to others. We’ve recently added some new products that we think many of you will enjoy.

Official Art of Manliness Pocket Knife


Every man should carry a pocket knife, and if you’re going to be carrying one, it might as well be an Art of Manliness pocket knife.

The Art of Manliness knife offers the high-quality materials, precision in German engineering, and the sharp look and fine details of the modern Böker knife. This traditional double bolster knife takes us back to the good ol’ days. The knife features fine polished brass bolsters and synthetic handle scales with inlay. The blades are made of high performance 440C stainless steel.

This everyday carry is laser-etched with the AoM monogram on the outside of the handle and the Art of Manliness logo on the inside of the knife blade and makes for a perfect coming-of-age gift.


The AoM Varsity Cap


We’ve teamed up with our friends at Ebbets Field Flannels to bring you the exclusive Art of Manliness Varsity Cap. Great for those trips to the hardware store or weekend adventures.

  • Lightweight maroon wool cap
  • Cream felt “AoM” on front
  • Custom John L. Sullivan embroidery on back
  • Green under visor
  • Adjustable brown leather strap
  • Nickel adjustment clasp
  • Black cotton sweatband
  • Made in the USA

Character Is Power Poster


Back when we wrote our book, Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom and Advice for the Modern Man, we came across a fascinating illustration that served as the frontpiece to a book published in 1899: Traits of Character Illustrated in Bible Light by Henry F. Kletzing. We thought it would make for a great poster to help inspire men to strive for excellence.

Enlarged and sharpened to beautifully display the qualities of true character, this handsome and inspiring poster is ready to be hung on your wall and serve as a daily reminder to be your very best, As Kletzing himself writes:

“Truth is much more forcibly impressed upon the mind when accompanied by illustration, either in incident, anecdote, example or in a drawing or picture. Where the mere statement of truth in the abstract may fail of results, the illustration comes to the aid of truth and impresses and fixes the thought upon the mind.”

This 12″ x 18″ poster is printed in the good old USA on high-quality, matte-finished paper.

Optional framed version available!

707 Martin I October 29, 2013 at 11:49 pm

The knife, without question. I love that style of knife. It reminds me of the one my grandfather used to have. I was never able to find it after he passed. I only have “tactical” styles of knives and I’d love something like that to be able to carry and pass down to my son some day.
