If you’ve been reading Cool Material for any amount of time, you know we’re big fans of everything that comes out from experimental adventure brand Vollebak. More mad clothing scientists than designers, the guys behind Vollebak make gear that’s so absurdly well built it will last multiple lifetime. The 50,000BC Jacket. Three versions of the 100 Year Hoodie. The Condition Black Survival Jacket. And now, the appropriately titled Vollebak Indestructible Jacket. This is the brief: “140 years after the denim jacket was adopted by miners, cowboys and labourers, and more than 100 years after the first leather bomber jackets were created for WW1 pilots, we’ve built the Indestructible Jacket out of the strongest fibre ever made.” We’re not talking about a lightweight, utility jacket made of waxed cotton, denim, canvas or leather, here. We’re talking about construction with 100% Dyneema Black, the single strongest fiber known to man that is 15x stronger than steel and used in body and vehicle armor. All that durability comes at a price, but when you factor in wearing it for the rest of your life it’s still a deal.
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.
