3-Man-Chess

Chess has always been a game we could get behind. It’s the type of sophisticated, sporting endeavor that exudes wood paneling, the smell of cigars and the taste of a few fingers of quality scotch. It’s a thinking man’s game and we like to consider ourselves thinking men. The only problem with chess is that, as it was designed, it only accommodates two people. Until now. Using Sherlock Holmes levels of deduction and what we assume is a significant amount of engineering expertise, 3 Man Chess has finally been created. The game plays the same except the board is round to fit in a third person. We haven’t played it ourselves (yet), but we imagine it’s so much fun that it will ultimately result in fisticuffs.

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.
