retro-gaming-900

Ever since we referred to a controller as a “joystick” (a name we always thought was better suited for something else), we’ve been slightly addicted to gaming. Even though we love our PS3’s and Xbox’s, we miss that old school joy we experienced when we first bought Super Mario Bros. 3 or pulled off a fatality. These retro gaming products will remind you of the good ol’ days of sore thumbs and well-known Contra codes.

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.
