The Day of The Dead is about paying respect, remembering those you’ve lost and lots and lots of skulls. Seriously, if you had no idea what was going on, you’d think anyone involved was a serious fan of Papa Shango. If you’re breaking out a bottle of fine wine that day to pay homage, here is the corkscrew to pop that top. Designed by Stephanie Suarez for the Mexico Design Challenge, this steel Day of The Dead Corkscrew is topped with a textured motif on top and a pair of bony hands. Just don’t drink so much you end up like the dude pictured on it.

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.
