New Haven Oyster Knife: Named “The Best Oyster Knife” by America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Illustrated. Here’s what they had to say: “R. Murphy’s New Haven oyster knife is well crafted, with a simple, comfortable wooden handle that never budged in our hands. It was able to slice oyster muscle without damaging the meat. One shucker noted that it seemed to disappear and become part of your hand.” Little Neck Clam Knife: A favorite of many clammers, the stainless steel blade has a sharpened edge for opening and rounded tip to fit gently against the thumb. Wellfleet Oyster Knife: Designed to meet the high standards of professional shuckers, these knives make simple work for occasional shuckers as well. The blade is pointed, requiring little force to ease into the hinge and twist the shells open. Leather Wrap: Made from butter-soft, full grain cowhide. It features eight 4-inch deep pockets – six 21/4-inch wide and two 1-inch wide – for shellfish knives of varying sizes. Secures with attached leather ties.USE & CARE
