Bespoke Post is a monthly membership club that delivers high-quality lifestyle products from up-and-coming brands for $49/month. It’s voted as one of the best men’s subscription boxes of 2022 by our readers and it’s a great box for women and couples as well.
When you sign up, there’s a quiz to determine your preferences and interests, then you’re matched with a new themed box every month. Each box promises at least $70 in retail value with items ranging from outdoor gear, barware, home, and kitchen goods, clothing, and more.
Unlike most subscription boxes, you get to preview your Bespoke Post box before it ships and you can easily swap for a different box or skip the month for no charge. You only pay for the months that interest you.
This is a review of the "Rare" box.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes).
My husband and I have not purchased any new cutlery since we got married 9 years ago, and it seemed like it was time to upgrade our steak knives–so this box seemed like a great option!
Inside the Bespoke Post "Rare" Box
Avanta Teak Wood Steak Knife Set by Messermeister - Retail Value $79.95 (on sale for $59.95)
This set of four steak knives is actually quite pretty! The rust-resistant stainless steel blade has a fine edge that looks sleek and works wonderfully for cutting. I didn't get to try it out on steak just yet, but it peeled and sliced up an apple perfectly! The handle is made of beautiful smoked teak wood with three rivets. Not only do these look incredibly nice, but they have a bit of weight to them making them feel sturdy and durable. These are definitely an upgrade to the knives we had previously!
Ancho Americano - Ancho Chile Coffee Blend by Whiskey Bent BBQ - Retail Value $11.75
This rub is going to be so good on the cut of meat that my husband smokes for us! It is a blend of spices, ancho chile peppers, chipotle peppers, and coffee, which was a bit of a surprising ingredient. It has just the right balance of salt to sweet to spice for me and the coffee, while just a hint, really helps to round out those flavors. While perfectly tasty on its own, I can't wait to try it as an actual rub!
I was super eager to test out Bespoke Post's newest offering, which is the option to Supercharge your order each month. In addition to picking your box, they will also add a bonus item to your cart for a special price. The item will retail for more, but it will only cost you up to $20 plus tax and you always have the option to skip it. You can't swap out your item the way you can with the boxes, but you can preview it and opt out if it's not for you.
Echo Pocket Scope by Brunton - Retail Value $34
This month they chose this little pocket scope for us. It felt very random, but I wanted to try it out and see what the quality was like. This one did cost us the full $20, but it retails for $34, so it was still a good deal. While this isn't something we were in the market for, I am so glad we opted in! It is really cool and comes with a microfiber cloth to clean it with, a strap, and a case. The scope itself is a quality item and I was so impressed with the magnification (7X) and clarity (as close as 13"). I can't wait to take this on our next hike with us because I think it will be perfect for checking out some wildlife up close! This was the little item we didn't know we needed or wanted, but are now super glad to have!
Value - Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $56.89
Value Breakdown: We received a set of four steak knives and some spices with a total retail value of $91.70. Not bad for the cost of this box! If we include our supercharge item that's a total value of $125.70 when we paid a total of $78.09. Not bad at all!
I love the quality of our items this month and I think we also got a great deal on them! The Supercharge pocket scope was a fun add-on to check out and I know we will get a lot of use out of it. With the holidays coming up, this is one subscription to watch!
