We first fell in love with the power of a hydraulic press thanks to a YouTube channel we stumbled upon months ago. The unwavering power makes mincemeat out of even the most robust items. It’s one of the reasons we love Splatware, a collection of plates and cups formed by that destruction press. Granby Workshop, the makers of Splatware, create colorful balls of clay and then let the hydraulic press do its dirty work, squishing the clay into a unique piece of dinnerware. We’re always fans of one-of-a-kind products, of having dishes that aren’t from IKEA and aren’t found in everyone else’s cabinets, which is why we’re backing Splatware on Kickstarter.

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.
