The One Thing I’ve Always Wanted (But Would Never Buy for Myself)

Five New Yorkers, their dream presents, and some sensible alternatives.


The Dreamer:
Isadora Tang
, 29, consultant

The Fantasy Present:
Best Made Co. Paler Male felling axes, $300

I love these because they’re equal parts beautiful and utilitarian. It would look really great on my wall, and it’d be nice to have a weapon in the house for when the zombie apocalypse comes.
Available at Best Made, 36 White St., nr. Church St.; 646-478-7092.

A Smart Backup:
Wood-inlaid pocket knife, $55

Santa Fe Stoneworks’ walker-deterring lock-back blade is as beautiful as it is deadly.
Available at Raised by Wolves, 174 Franklin St., nr. Java St., Greenpoint; 347-889-5798.
