Tool: Oyster Knife
An oyster knife is specifically designed for shucking Oysters and other types of shellfish. It usually consists of a thick, pear-shaped handle that is easily gripped, connected to a triangular, thick, pointed, yet blunt blade.
The knife is wedged into shell close to the hinge, then twisted to cause the shell to crack open. Once the shell is open the knife is then used to cut the strip of muscle that keeps the shell attached.
It is a very handy tool that can reduce the time it would normally take to pry open an oyster. Also a very versitle tool in general. Works as a screw driver (both standard and phillips), can pry many things open or break apart things like frozen chicken breasts or sausages.
