Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.


Spyderco Lil Lum Nishijin Folding Knife
A more compact homage to the traditional Chinese Shilin Cutter, featuring a bamboo leaf-shaped blade and an electric blue glass fiber handle. Save $80-$90.


A made-in-the-USA bedding brand that crafts their sheets from California supima cotton (the longest cotton fiber strands on the planet), so your sheets are strong yet soft. Oh, and the duvet covers have hand holds built in, which is a nice, obvious making-the-bed hack. Sheet sets are now $35-$50 off.

Brooks Brothers
