Index Cards. We all remember them. Maybe you used them to memorize the Periodic Table of the Elements. Or perhaps all those Trigonometry or Calculus equations you needed to know were scrawled on cards, tossed in your backpack and referenced between classes or on the bus ride to school. Last-minute cramming in the pocket of your faded, patched-out JanSport backpack.
These ain't your grade school index cards. These here, my friend, are the Nock Co. Dot Dash Cards. And, spoiler alert, they are suh-weet! You're probably thinking to yourself, "What's so special about some note cards?" Well, I'll tell you.
First, they're made from really, really awesome paper. They accept all kinds of pencils, pens and inks from mechanical pencils, rollerballs and ballpoints to fountain pens, fine and broad. I have yet to find anything that bleeds or feathers on them except for when I tried to lay down a ton of ink using a folded nib and that was pushing it a bit as that's not really the purpose of these cards.
Great paper not enough for you? They have a super-cool dot-dash grid in your choice of orange (amber) and blue (light blue), which is basically a standard graph grid broken up by dots. The grid makes these cards awesome for notes, drawing, writing, sketching out a really great idea for a new hydrogen-powered rocket engine... They're awesome. Personally, I use them for quick notes (thank you's and the like) and grocery lists.
Nock Co. made them to fit the original Fodderstack case, which holds a stack of these cards and a pen or two. Paired up with the Fodderstack and your favorite pen(s) and/or pencil(s), you've got a perfect pocket companion for EDC, ready to handle all but the lengthiest of honey-do and grocery lists.
And finally, as if you're still thinking these bad boys are just a little 'ho hum', I'll throw out this tidbit of info for you: they're made in America. Yep, just like all of Nock Co's awesome stuff, these guys are made right here in the good ol' USA. Boom! Put that in your patriotic pipe and smoke it. Wanna step your EDC game up a bit with some of these awesome index cards? Head on over to Nock Co. and pick up a pack or two. Or ten. Because they're awesomely addictive and you'll want to make sure you have plenty on-hand. Especially once your friends start borrowing (read: stealing) them from you.
