If you like fancy cocktails—the kinds that include lighters to extract oil, near impossible to pronounce liqueurs or crazy hardware—you’ve probably enjoyed a libation or two that was perfectly chilled with an absurdly clear block, sphere or brick of ice. As any cocktail aficionado would, you tried to recreate it at home. You mastered the slow melting, large block, but you could never get the clarity quite right. We’ve been there. With Shard, none of us have to deal with cloudy ice in our fancy cocktails ever again. Using the Shard and the three included ice forms, you can create perfect 4″ x 4″ x 6″ ice blocks in the comfort of your own home. Once the ice block is ready, use the included ice prong and ice pick to create unique pieces of crystal clear ice for the cocktails you’ve been busy perfecting. Shard brings the speakeasy home and elevates your cocktails from libation to art.

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.
