Sadly, we don’t expect to ever visit outer space. For us, the final frontier will most likely remain unexplored. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t fascinated us endlessly. We’ve pored over books and watched countless documentaries about what exists beyond the Kármán line, and we’ve come away fascinated by a great number of things. One of those things is a common theme mentioned by astronauts returning to Earth: the smell. Yes, space has a smell. When an astronaut returns from a space walk and removes their helmet, they’re hit with a distinct scent. We’ve read many descriptions and decided, since we can’t go to space, let’s bring a little bit of space to us. This candle is designed to smell like outer space. We took the descriptions those astronauts shared in various publications and crafted a 100% soy wax candle out of them. This is space in a can. No space suit required.

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.
