You could slap a bottle opener on just about anything and make it better – a belt buckle, TV remote, baby stroller – but most of the time it’s more for a laugh than anything else.  When you’re doing some real work, however, and you’ve got your toolset out, having a cold one in arm’s reach is pretty much a necessity.  So, SURLY made the logical step and stuck a bottle opener onto a 15mm socket wrench to create the Jethro Tule.  The 15mm box wrench is designed for use on your bike and is really a needed item for any bike enthusiast.  Even if you don’t work on your bike much, it wouldn’t hurt to keep one in your toolbox cause unlike some of those random tools you never use – Why do I hav an awl? – this one can at least pop a beer.

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.
