Danner-CoolMaterial-IF1-11-27

Nothing says fall style like a pair of Danner boots, and their latest Portland Select collection more than lives up to the reputation they’ve built over the decades. We’re partial to the Danner Mountain Light Cascade Boots, but all the boots in the collection are great because of their effortless mix of style and durability thanks to the full-grain leather construction, Vibram Kletterlift outsoles and waterproof GORE-TEX liners. Whether you’re purchasing them as a gift or just shopping for yourself, these classic boots will last through a lifetime of holidays.

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.
