Friend, it’s that time of the year again. The holiday season has arrived, and I couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds. This year we’ve been busy leveling up The Medford Guy offerings across the board and in the process have been able to bring you some incredible collaborations and develop new business partnerships to carry us into the new year. While reflecting on those relationships and initiatives, I thought it would be fun to bring you guys (and gals) something truly unique to the Medford Guy Experience. Introducing The Medford Guy’s 12-Days of Christmas Holiday Wishlist!
This is something fun I put together and it has fantastic products for all peoples across all budget ranges. I hope you enjoy the list friends. Sit back and pour a drink, light a stogie and enjoy.
12 - Medford Knife and Tool Fighter Flipper
When Medford Knife and Tool released the Fighter Flipper, I couldn’t contain my excitement. I knew this would be an incredible design right out of the gate. To date, it is one of my favorite Medford knives on the market. The knife is seamless and pays tribute to the Medford fixed fighter knife which is a classic design in and of itself. The contours of the knife fit the hand just right with its .190” handle thickness, familiar ergonomics, and titanium pommel to tie the piece together. With an overall length of 9.5” and 4.25” of that being the blade, it has enough cutting edge to take care of any task. The Medford Knife and Tool Fighter Flipper is a must have in any knife collection and one that’s guaranteed to not leave your pocket. Click Here To See More Medford Fighter Flippers
11 - duPont REGISTRY Autos Subscription
Ok spoiler alert – I’m infatuated with exotic and luxury cars. If you have been following me for any amount of time you know that go-to source for anything luxury and exotic cars has always been, and will always be, my friends at duPont REGISTRY. This publication has been around for over 30 years and the reason is clear: They produce incredible content across several different luxury spaces, my favorite being duPont REGISTRY Autos, and duPont REGISTRY Watches. If you are obsessed with Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, and more, an annual subscription to duPont REGISTRY is a no brainer. It’s the perfect gift for any exotic/luxury car enthusiast this holiday season.
10 - Metal Urgency GADKA Spent Brass Hand-Crafted Men’s Ring
What person doesn’t appreciate fine hand-crafted jewelry or in this case men’s warfighter jewelry? Metal Urgency has made it their mission to create “Jewelry designed for the warrior in all of us” and I can attest their pendants, necklaces, and rings are truly impressive pieces. Their warfighter jewelry comes in a variety of finishes with some pendants and rings being expertly crafted out of traditional precious metals like gold and silver, while other pieces are made from war relics, bronze, and my personal favorite ‘American Spent Brass.’ Each one of their designs is inspired by a story, with immaculate attention to detail that in a way reads like a book.
One of Metal Urgency’s most popular pieces and a favorite of mine, the GADKA or Great American Door-Kickers Association ring makes it on this list because the details on this Men’s ring are astounding. From the I.G.Y.6 (I Got Your Six) tab, to the M240B Feed Tray and 7.62 Linked Rounds, to the Helmet details that pays tribute to an American hero who lost his leg in Afghanistan are what make this piece truly one of a kind.
9 - Burlock and Barrel ‘Whisper’ Premium American Whiskey
My fellow whiskey aficionados are going to rave over this selection on my 12-Days of Christmas Wishlist. If you have a friend or family member who is tough to buy for and you know that they enjoy a great glass of whiskey, I cannot recommend Burlock and Barrel Whiskey enough, particularly their Whisper Premium American Whiskey. This beautiful golden amber whiskey is sure to please, so much so that it was ranked the 2019 Double Gold Medal Winner ~ John Barleycorn Awards. This incredible whiskey is made using premium medium-grain Calrose rice and is aged in American white oak barrels imparting rich flavors like oak, caramel, vanilla, cherries, and toasted almonds. This exceptional whiskey is sure to please this holiday season! Link: https://burlockandbarrel.com
8 - Nash ‘On the Roam’ Double Knuckle Hammer
For those who may not know, the Nash ‘On the Roam’ collection on my website is the result of an epic collaboration between the extraordinary actor, Jason Momoa, and Nash Motorcycles. These American-made Knuckle Hammers and Hatchets are heirloom quality heritage pieces that will last a lifetime. The On the Roam Double Knuckle Hammer is an excellent everyday carry piece. And I already know what you’re thinking—an everyday carry hammer? Absolutely! I’ve been carrying the One the Roam Double Knuckle Hammer for a while now and it finds itself at home whether riding on your belt, or in your shop. The weighty hammer has been crafted here in the United States using hefty bronze and sports a dense, flamed Tennessee hickory handle that’s as handsome as it is functional. The Double Knuckle Hammer will smash, pound, fix, or destroy anything in its path as intended.
7 - Medford Knife and Tool M-48
One of the newest Medford knives introduced in 2021, the Medford M-48 flipper knife easily made it in my 12-Days of Christmas Wishlist. The M-48 knife is a tribute piece to the Patton battle tank, and the motley crew who commanded it. It’s a great everyday carry knife that is incredibly lightweight thanks to its titanium/aluminum composite chassis and includes a reversible pocket clip—a first for Medford. The Medford M-48 is nearly 9” deployed, and the 3.9” blade features Medford’s new Magnus Edge Tip that reinforces what’s generally thought of as the weakest part of a knife blade. With a variety of custom colors to choose from, The M-48 Knife is a surefire crowd pleaser. Shop Our Medford M-48 Knives Here
6 - Epic Cigars Corojo Reserva
The Corojo Reserva is a robust, yet smooth cigar that is sure to satisfy any gentleman (or woman) who enjoys a good pour of scotch and solid smoke. This cigar features an easy drawl, medium character, and notes of spice, oak, leather, and espresso. A bold, red Colorado Corojo rap from Ecuado surrounds a filler consisting of a special blend of Dominican Ligero, and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos. I highly recommend the Epic Corojo Reserva for the cigar-lover on your Christmas list. Link: https://www.epiccigars.com
5 - Manifest Distilling Florida Citrus Vodka
I know what you’re probably thinking—a flavored vodka? Jake has lost his mind! Hear me out friends, this Florida Citrus Vodka is a game changer. Manifest Distilling is an artisanal distillery based in Jacksonville, Florida that produces some of the best spirits around. They’re an organic distilling facility that incorporates sustainable practices in their process. Their finely crafted spirits are created with American-made equipment, and their raw materials and grains are sourced through tightly knit co-ops throughout North America. Each batch of raw materials has its own chain of custody ensuring clean, non-toxic, pest-control-free practices used in growing the materials used. The result of a happy accident, the Florida Citrus Vodka is refreshing, and made with Florida grown oranges, grapefruit, and lemons. This delightful drink recently won Double Gold Medals at the 2021 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition. Trust me when I say that you, as well as your closest friends and family, will enjoy this vodka. It’s perfect for the holidays. Link: http://www.manifestdistilling.com

3 - Audemars Piguet Watch from Luxury Bazaar Watches
Like Praetorian Ti knives, luxury watches are just something to be experienced. Audemars Piguet is one of the most quintessential luxury watch brands on the market and there’s no better place to buy one than at Luxury Bazaar Watches. I was able to see them at The SAC Collective I attended recently, and after seeing a few in person any Audemars Piguet watch is a time piece to be treasured. Whether it’s a gift for yourself or a loved one, I highly recommend getting Audemars Piguet and Luxury Bazaar Watches. Link: https://www.luxurybazaar.com
2 - Medford Knife and Tool Damascus Fixed Fighter
You know here at The Medford Guy, we’re all about taking things to the next level! Staying true to that ethos, we’ve taken the classic Medford Fixed Fighter Knife and turned it into a show room stunner! The Medford Damascus Fixed Fighter features .250” thick Chad Nichols Damascus steel that is near iridescent when the light reflects off the blade. The handle has been skeletonized to lighten the knife’s weight while also displaying more of the pattern Damascus revealed behind the handle. It’s truly a knife designed and built for the uncommon man. Shop Our Exclusive Damascus Medford Knives Here
1 - Jacob and Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion
When it comes to luxury watches, Jacob and Co. are truly at the apex of beautiful design, creativity, and flawless function. Each timepiece is a magnificent blend of innovation and artistry that will carry throughout the generations to come. Jacob and Co. timepieces are certainly on another level and truly an industry pioneer. My personal favorite is the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillion and comes in easily as the top luxury watch on The Medford Guy’s 12-Days of Christmas Holiday Wishlist. Link: https://jacobandco.com

One last thing! I couldn’t fit all my favorite products into on 12 highlights. I tried but I just couldn’t.
