Lamson Oyster Knife

When it comes shucking oysters, a well-designed knife like this one makes all the difference. Ours is equipped with a short, rigid blade that efficiently pries open shells and severs the muscle hinge, making it easy to enjoy the plump, juicy oyster within. A classic oyster knife made by Lamson & Goodnow, a Massachusetts company that has produced fine kitchen tools since 1837. Reinforced high-carbon stainless-steel blade has the perfect rigidity and width for slipping between the opposing shells to pry them open. Durable solid walnut handle ensures a firm, comfortable grip.

Not very comfortable
January 26, 2014
Used this knife 3 times to shuck about a dozen each time. I find the handle too fat and the blade a little too wide. I then purchased the brand Dexter and prefer that one much more. Much more comfortable and easier to shuck. I think it may also have a sharper point which is helpful in the beginning.
Pros: Design
Cons: Difficult to Use

Awww Shucks
December 12, 2012
Had a great time shucking oysters at Drakes Bay oyster farm this weekend. Could've bought a knife there but I'm a sucker for random kitchen tools. Attractive and sturdy wooden handle and made in the USA.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accuracy, Quality, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Design, Weight

This Knife Shucks!!!
January 16, 2009
I was delighted when my wife surprised me at Christmas with this unique gift.
As a lover of oysters I got into buying and schucking immediately.
I can't tell you how great this knife is.
With a few tips from a friend, (and lots of practice) I am now a pro and love my W & S Blade.
Thanks Molly!
