Shucking oysters are much more pleasurable when you use an oyster knife with the right features. Shucking is the action of prying open oysters and separating their meat from the shell. The blade of an oyster knife is beveled yet dull, so the delicate muscle of the oyster will not become damaged when shucking. At the blade’s end, the pointed or rounded tip is curved slightly upward which helps to unhinge the oyster and slice through its muscle. It is highly recommended you use the knife type designed for the right shell. 

Providence Pattern

This knife is comparable to the new haven pattern featuring a short, wide, straight blade with a long pear shaped handle.  The difference between the Providence and the New Haven is the Providence’s flat blade with no upward curve. 

  • Good for oysters of all sizes, especially medium sized oysters
  • Moderately pointed tip
  • Flat blade, no curves
  • Wide straight blade
  • High-carbon steel blade
  • Blade edge is perfect for removing oysters from their shell
