The LeRoux branded New Haven oyster knife is a wood handled shucker with curved tip. The curved tip allows for excellent leverage when prying open the hinge. Once opened, the curved tip rides between the oyster and its shell, away from away from the tender meat. This avoids shredding and preserves the oyster’s flavorful liquor in the curve of the shell. A perfectly shucked oyster has only the muscle cut free from the shell with the belly and mantle intact.
American made by R. Murphy for the past 100 years, this oyster knife was named the best oyster knife by America’s Test Kitchen. This is what they had to say about it: “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.”
