Camera-Wrist-Strap

For a while we were convinced there was one company making all the wrist straps that are included with most point-and-shoot digital cameras. Just one little uninspired-to-get-creative-because-there’s-no-competition company out there churning these things out by the case full. The YKK Zipper company of camera straps. Instead of being stuck with that same boring strap, check out this offering from DSPTCH. Their Camera Wrist Strap is made of Commercial Type III 550 Parachute Cord that will withstand the elements and won’t rot or mildew. Adjustable for random wrist sizes, DSPTCH’s strap looks good enough on its own but will save your ass if you decide to take any shots that involve reaching over a ledge, off a cliff or while inebriated.

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.
