At some point in every young man’s life he thought about how cool it would be to live the life Hugh Hefner was living. Granted, for most of us this was back when magazines were still relevant, AOL was the best option for the Internet and all of those ex-Playmates hadn’t gone on TV or written tell-all books about how miserable the entire experience was. If you’re in the market for a new pad in LA, the Playboy Mansion is for sale by Playboy Enterprises for upwards of $200 million. Your purchase would presumably include everything from the Prohibition-era style wine cellar, grotto, vintage game room, the Elvis Room, tennis courts and one Hugh Hefner. Not the cardboard cutout that he supposedly leaves in the Dining Room, Hef himself. Even though he doesn’t “technically” own the mansion anymore, there’s a life estate clause in the contract that will allow him to stay there until he dies.

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.
