Ordering things online for delivery is something we can all but guarantee everyone reading this has been doing for years. But we’re also willing to bet that you’ve been having even more things delivered during the current COVID-19 pandemic because interacting with as few people as possible is just a good way to be living. Whether it’s groceries, mail order meats, clothing, sundries, furniture, tech accessories or anything else, it all arrives in a box. You need a way to safely and efficiently open all those packages, and that’s where the affordable and highly-rated OLFA 5006 H-1 25mm Rubber Inset Grip EHD Utility Knife comes in. It works like pretty much every other breakable blade utility knife you’ve ever used, but this one is also outfitted with a ratchet-wheel blade lock and rubber grip handle insert which makes it way more functional than the traditional options. It’s also designed to work with most extra heavy duty blades, so you don’t have to worry about pricey, proprietary replacement blades. Utility knives aren’t exactly sexy–though this one at least tries–but it does its job quite well.

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.
