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. 

The Boston Pattern

This knife is an American favorite, the Boston is very versatile. Its long narrow blade can be used to shuck any type or size of oyster.  Its pear shaped handle makes it comfortable to grip and hold. 

  • High carbon steel blade with long oval-round or pear shaped handle
  • Can use any shucking method with this knife, except side-knife method
  • Good grip on handle
  • Forward bulge in the handle serves as a stabilizing thumb rest
  • Narrow body behind it enhances a good grip for the rest of the fingers
  • Rear of the handle is bulged again for good support in the base of the palm
  • Slightly convex blade
  • Not as sharp blade
  • Gradually narrows towards tip, flat rounded tip
