The Empire 33 Custer Handbag ($Inquire) is worth writing home about, thanks to designer and apparent sword-enthusiast, Marjan Petrovski. Sure it's named for General George Armstrong Custer, hero of the Civil and Indian Wars, but the high quality Italian leather's gotta be way softer than his saddle. What makes this bag dangerously chic is the Civil war sword handle, complete with hardwood, steel and handcrafted brass fittings. Delicate and threatening is deadly stylish.
