Pocket Artillery Mini Cannon

The Pocket Artillery Mini Cannon is kind of like the slow loris – It looks cute and tame, but it can do some serious damage. The little cannon looks like a harmless desktop accessory, it’s nicely polished, available in some eye-catching colors and it seems like an ideal way to show off your eye for design and love of little trinkets. Then you light the fuse. All of a sudden that fun office party turns into a hospital run cause Dottie took a BB in the hand. What we’re trying to say is, be careful with this thing. The Mini Cannon fires standard BB’s with a fireworks fuse through the tilt-able barrel. Of course you could just display it without running out to get some BB’s, powder and fuses, but we’re guessing that sounds laughable.

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.
