1. Hold the oyster (rounded side on the bottom) in a kitchen towel with one hand and oyster knife (with the curve in the blade facing up) in the other. (you can stabilize it on the counter as well)
2. Find where the two halves come together on the hinged end. That is the end opposite to where you would think the oyster would "open" up. Sometimes this part can be tricky if the oyster is laden with barnacles. After a few you will be good at finding the "spot".
3. With even pressure drive the point of the knife into hinge/crack and rock it slightly (if needed) to sever the hinge. Do not let the whole knife go into the shell. You will know it when it pops.
4. Remove the point and wipe it clean on the towel (this avoids bits of shell going into the tasty part)
5. Place the tip back into the opening and work it in a sweeping motion loosening the meat from the top of the shell. It done right, as you work towards the far end, the top with pop off on its own.
6. Lastly, run the tip under the meat to release it from the bottom shell, leaving the meat and liquid in the convenient "little bowl".
I just finished shucking over 100 oysters (Kumamoto and Miyagi) with this knife without even a hitch! My thought is....buy this knife and learn the technique. You will not be disappointed.Read more ›
also, three comments mentioned that this knife is "wimpy," "garbage," and a "waste of time." I don't really agree with them. I've purposely tried to bend this knife. the only thing that gave is the "pop" of the oyster. It's fairly sturdy, and for under 10 dollars, i don't think I can complain.
I recommend this knife, whether amateur of not. cheers and enjoy your meals.
One reviewer suggested that the knives be sharpened and used with a different technique. He is a professional oyster shucker and undoubtedly has the skill to avoid injury. For casual home cooks--most of whom will not be using safety gloves--this might present a prime opportunity to get hurt rather badly.
