Vinyl is on a comeback, in many ways because it replaces the tangible elements of music collecting that the iPod killed in the blink of an eye. The Jico Kanade Record Cleaner ($88) is a beautiful companion accessory for keeping your records pristine. Each unique cleaner is meticulously hand built by expert artisans from the same quality leather and threads found in luxury European bags. Like many fine leather goods, the texture and feel of the cleaner improves with the passage of time — further distinguishing its one-of-a-kind nature. The storage case, made from hinoki cypress used in traditional Japanese architecture, is built with the same attention to detail by craftsmen skilled in the creation of wooden masu boxes, constructed without any nails, using so-called yosegi-saiku technique. Only 300 will be made, and advanced sales start today, with a wider public sale starting on October 10th. So strike while you can if your favorite albums could use some real love after all your randy groping.
