There’s something unique about Deus Ex Machina’s latest creation, the Atramental Two Five: it looks somewhat anonymous and totally special, at the same time. Its basic motocross DNA is combined with a black, silver, and gold colorway that’s a head-turner. The base bike is a low-displacement but capable Honda CRF250R with all of the stock plastic parts replaced by custom pieces. It also gets a new subframe, new seat, Renthal tracker style bars, LED headlight, Acerbis fenders, and a custom fuel tank with an acid-etched logo cap to top it all off. A functional and thoughtful addition is a bigger radiator to aid cooling in hotter weather, making it more versatile than the base bike. This special build was done up based on a customer request, and we’re guessing he’s in love with his new creation and struggling between gawking at it or getting it dirty.

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.
