“Rustic” is one of those buzzwords that completely snares our attention like “retro” or “see-through.” When it comes before a product we are going to want it nine times out of ten (no thank you Rustic Toilet or Rustic TP). The cases from Rustic Case Company easily fall on our purchase list. The wool sleeves they make for both iPads (1 & 2) and for the Kindle 3 definitely have a rustic appeal to them with the gray wool and natural worn leather. They take your modern day technology and wrap it in something that looks like it would hold a journal you’d use to write letters to your dearest in the night before battle. Plus, they’re way classier than tossing your iPad or Kindle in a generic case that is readily available and most likely in use by teenage girls.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
