Xabier Ferro is a creative designer and wood artisan currently based in LA who’s creating awesome daily carry goods as HoboWood. The first release is a seventeen layer thick wood carabiner that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Using oak, walnut, or a combination of the two, each carabiner is created by pressing 17 layers of those woods bonded in a press mold and finished with three hand-rubbed coats of True-oil and wax polish. Functionally, it works like just about every other not-for-climbing-purposes carabiner out there, but this one is a whole helluva lot prettier and, obviously, made out of wood.

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.
