An ergonomic oyster shucking knife designed by a master shucker with a degree in ergonomic design! World Champion Oyster Shucker Patrick McMurray (yes, they have competitions for that) designed this revolutionary new style of shucking knife and Swissmar manufactures it in two colors and in a thin metal multi-tool form. The molded handle allows for a stronger grip, and the angle of the blade makes shells pop with ease. Almost as easy as turning the key in your car with this knife. Equally easy to use for righties and lefties. Recommended for use on most oysters and especially if shucking quantities over 2 dozen — but with tiny flat oysters like Olympias, you might prefer the curved thin tip of a New Haven style oyster shucking knife like this one from Swiss Army. Sometimes it’s best to just invest in the full arsenal of oyster shucking knives so you’re ready for everything. Get all four of Salinity’s recommended knives here.
