Set to be showcased at Milan Design Week next month, Erdem Selek’s PlusMinus screwdrivers are fit for display. The Turkish-born, Oregon-based designer rethought the traditional screwdriver from the ground up and turned it into something that isn’t only vital for a whole slew of tasks, but also pleasing to look at. The PlusMinus set includes a Phillips #2 and flat head 3/16″ screwdriver that are both made of polished stainless with a flat, wafer style “handle” that make the entire package look like a tiny ping pong paddle. Plus and Minus signs are engraved on each of the pieces in the set to indicate at a glance which type of end they have, but they’re also “positioned in a way to guide the user the direction to unscrew or screw.” Finally, a set of screwdrivers you can use without having to go through the whole “right tighty, lefty loosey” thing in your head.

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.
