This little oyster knife is really popular amongst restaurant chefs. Its nice thin blade easily slides between the shells creating very little damaged and limiting the amount of grit that gets into the oyster.
The yellow handle has a sensible flared guard that protects fingers and thumb from nasty oyster cuts.
These quality products from André Verdier of France are specifically designed to ensure safety and efficiency in the often tricky preparation (and eating!) of oysters, crustaceans and shellfish.
