This is R. Murphy's classic maple wood-handled oyster shucker. The blade is made of 420HC High Carbon Stainless Steel.
It is the only knife in the collection with a curved tip, a brilliant design feature. This innovation allows for excellent leverage when opening at the hinge. It also rides high inside the oyster to avoid damaging the meat.
This New Haven knife was named “Best Oyster Knife” by America’s Test Kitchen and was featured in their Cook’s Illustrated magazine. Blade length: 2 5/8" Knife care: Handwash
