As lovers of raw oysters, nothing might be more satisfying than getting a fresh briny bag and shucking them yourself. An experienced shucker can make quick work of an easy dozen, and, on its own, this classic oyster knife is a master's tool. This gorgeous shucker, however, comes with its own wooden oyster "guard", designed to hold slippery shells while levering them open. "Ouvrir les huitres sans risque"? Oui. Stylish mastery made accessible. 2 1/3" stainless steel blade and guard, beechwood handle.
