Originally designed to fill the underserved void between inexpensive MGs and Triumphs and the expensive Mercedes 300 SL, the BMW 507 was made from 1956 through 1959. However, due to higher than expected costs, the project was shelved with a scant 251 models actually made. Rarer still are the Series II 507s, with total production of only 217 models. Luckily, one of these Series II 507s will be hitting the auction floor next month at the Design by Disruption at RM Sotheby’s in New York City. Finished in black with red interior and complete with the graceful yet aggressive lines that would later inspire the BMW Z8, this particular 507 is expected to fetch north of $2 million.

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.
