After reading many mixed reviews on this knife I was reconsidering whether or not to buy it. Granted...it is a very inexpensive purchase but why waste money. There is much confusion on what an oyster knife is supposed to do. Remember, it is not a pry bar. It is all about blade placement, not brute force. I have a feeling that many of the negative reviewers don't know how to properly open an oyster. Lets review:

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".
7. Enjoy!

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.

i read all the reviews before i bought this knife, some were pretty helpful and some were pretty inaccurate. For one, this knife is not for professionals. I've only learned how to shuck oysters recently. I only know one technique so far - going straight for the hinge. Just work at the hinge a few runs, and once you feel the hinge giving, slow down and ease back on the force, the gently twist and you're in. I haven't tried to slide the knife along the side of the oyster, but i suppose that would work too.

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.

This is an excellent knife but not for the amateur. It is designed to open an oyster from the side by sliding it along the side groove along the top and bottom shell. By entering from the side you can cut the abductor muscle and flip the top-shell off. It is not a "top-popper" that is designed to open the oyster from the hinge. However, if you sharpen this knife it can be used for hinge-entry by moving the knife with a side-to-side motion while applying pressure, once an incision is made you can then turn your wrist while rocking and pop the hinge. In any case, shucking is an art that you develop over time. I shuck for a living and anyone (a previous reviewer) who takes 20 minutes to open 36 oysters is not a professional but is laughable. The bottom line is if you don't open oysters on a regular basis, and don't really know how to open an oyster, then get a top popper knife with a thick shaft. But if you know what you are doing or want to learn the slick and easy way to open an oyster, this knife is exceptional and I use it every day.

I own a total of three oyster knives and this one is by far the best. The tapering at the tip of this knife is the feature I like the best. Also, unlike some broad bladed knives, the narrow blade is easier to insert into the smaller, and yearling, oysters. The handle is not too thin and even allows a decent grip for my wife's smaller hands. The guard could be slightly larger but it's been good enough to save me during the occasional slip.

I was a little wary ordering these knives since this was going to be our first oyster-shucking experience, and the reviews were mixed. However, the knives worked perfectly once we figured out what exactly we were supposed to be doing. The trick is to make sure you have the knife wedged in deep enough (> 1 cm) before trying to twist and pry the shells apart. We had six complete beginners shucking happily using these knives. I recommend these knives to anyone, especially since they also seem to be the cheapest ones available with free shipping.

This knife has a good grip and a good shape, but the quality of steel is very poor. After 5 dozen oysters, the tip of the knife is bent and it is very difficult to work with it now. This is not what good steel is supposed to be!

I bought several of these knives for a shuck-your-own oyster party at my home. Skill levels varied among the guests, but many had never shucked an oyster in their lives. Once introduced to the proper technique (which is clearly outlined on the product packaging) they zipped right through the process and were amazed at how easy it was. We shucked a LOT of oysters that night and the knives still looked brand new when I took them out of the dishwasher.

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.
