As most of us have figured out by now, the best way to protect ourselves from the current Covid crisis is isolation. In most circumstances, that means self-quarantine at home wherever you’re living currently–but if the price is right, you could be quarantining with your family and friends on a private island of your very own in Connecticut that’s just a short boat ride across the Long Island Sound from New York. Almost 6 acres of incredible beauty. Picturesque, expanded 3 bedroom and 2 full bath cottage with a total of of 2,600 sq. ft of living area–including a master bedroom that lies at the top of the lighthouse-style tower and includes a cathedral ceiling. This is pretty much the ideal setting for anyone looking to quarantine in style if they have two and a half million bucks and are looking to add a private island in the US to their investment portfolio.

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.
