    Still use a wide leather guitar strap that my girlfriend in high school gave to me as a gift. It's probably 35 years old and going strong. Crappy pic included.

    My house was built in 1956 it's 5 years younger than me. I wear glasses, they're getting to be very old technology dating back to the 13th century.

    I've got a gadget I run water through, that used to be good for something else, but I don't remember what?!

    The pipe I'm smoking right now was made in 1952. (Used to be my Dad's.) I have a silver snuffbox in my pocket that was made in 1899.

    My 1938 Pelikan 100N fountain pen. It still has the original neoprene piston seal and still works after all these decades of daily use. It has a gold nib that writes buttery smooth with a bit of edge, just the way I like it best.

    Comb and toothbrush comes to mind. Comb technology is said to be 5,000 years old.

    If you insist :). My house was built in 1792, and probably designed in 16xx...

    I wear a pair of Converse Jack Purcells pretty much every day and they were designed in 1935 (when I'm not wearing my Chuck Taylors, designed in 1923).

    I have a Barcelona chair in my living room, designed in 1929, and have an Anglepoise 1227 on my desk at work (designed in 1935).

    S. Gawith's Skiff, at the moment. It mostly likes English-y blends.
