As the war between laptops and tablets rages on, we may finally have a glimpse at how the whole thing will end, and it comes from Microsoft. The Microsoft Surface Book, simply put, is the best of both worlds and then some. At its most basic, it’s a powerful, full laptop designed with enough power to satisfy the creative types who tend to stick with Apple. Detach the screen portion and you have a tablet with a 13.5″ display, which works with OneNote and the Surface Pen. The most unique aspect, however, is seen when you reattach the tablet and allow the funky hinge to flip the screen into creative canvas mode. From there you can sketch and draw away and have your keyboard just a flip away. You’ll have access to all of Microsoft Office, Photoshop, and a lot of the other software you’re already familiar with, but you’re granted all sorts of new freedom and ways to use it.

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.
