This sturdy, pointed pry-bar of a shucker is an oyster's worst nightmare. Even the toughest hinges will give way under its might, allowing the tapered edge to cleanly remove the bivalve from its home. With this in mind, it's clear to see why this shucker is a favourite of oyster farmers along the Atlantic Seaboard. The handle is made from 100% reclaimed & recycled plastic, part of R. Murphy's efforts to keep plastic out of our oceans and land.
Designed for kumamoto & shigoku oysters, also handles larger East & West coast varieties well.
Oyster knives work best with a twisting motion to open hinges. Prying motions can snap the blade.
