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
