The father / son team at Onehundred is back on Kickstarter with their latest project, “Qbit: a modern interpretation of an ancient tool.” Based on the ancient cubit ruler, one of the earliest known measuring devices, Qbit is an EDC measuring tool that’s precision-turned on a Swiss CNC lathe from stainless steel or brass before being machined with Standard or Metric measuring scales and laser-etched graphics. Qbit comes in short (3″ or 75mm) or long (6″ or 150mm) sizes and each option also has an adjustable red marker for transferring or remembering measurements. It’s not going to be as useful as a multi-tool on a regular basis, but the Qbit is still a great addition to the everyday carry if you find yourself measuring smaller things regularly. The Qbit starts at $20 for the smallest size (3″ or 75mm) and has about a month to go on the Kickstarter project with estimated delivery of rewards in November.

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.
