Huckduck-Lighting-th

If you’ve been obsessing over the current vintage-industrial design craze going around like we have, your life just got a whole lot easier. Rather than having to head to Home Depot / Lowes / Ace / Insert-Internet-Hardware-Store-Here to pick up electrical cord and sockets and lightbulbs, you can just pick up a pre-hand-made lighting rig, or extension cord, from Huckduck. Designed and built by a guy, Dennis Murphy, disappointed with his Brooklyn accommodations, each lighting option from Huckduck uses cloth cord, cool sockets, vintage style plugs and many of them come with wire cages and Edison bulbs. In other words, they’re exactly what you’ve been thinking about building for the better part of a year, except now you don’t have to risk self-induced electro shock therapy.

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.
