1803 Oyster Knife
There is an art to shucking an oyster. It requires time, focus and a seriously good tool. Just like our classic hand-forged stainless steel oyster shucker with antler handle. Handsome, sturdy and strong, this little knife is possibly one of the most beautiful oyster knives you will ever see!
Our hand-forged stainless steel blade has a full tang through the length of the shucker handle to provide superior stability, balance and weight. It is then set between two formed scales of red deer antler and finished with three small brass nails.
Antler feels good in the hand, while also providing additional grip when wet. Oyster knives are strong and hardy tools, and if you lose your concentration or slip, injuries can occur. So please be careful, it is not an easy job!
There are a few tips for getting this right – find a comfy spot, a wet tea towel, (or for the real enthusiast a shucking glove) and a bag of fresh oysters then shuck your day away. Once you have shucked your oyster, it should look clean: there should be no shell and what ever you do, don’t wash it! Keep the fresh sea water in the shell and slurp away. Heaven.
Note: The fastest oyster shucker in the world is Patrick McMurray; he shucks 38 oysters in a minute – practice makes perfect so good luck & enjoy!
