Victorinox, makers of the Original Swiss Army Knife, has been crafting fine cutlery since the later 1800's. Oysters knives are unique in the world of cutlery. To shuck an oyster a chef is presented with the task of "splitting a rock" first then proceeding to properly process the most tender of meats hidden within. In this endeavor no standard knife will do. The Victorinox Boston Oyster Knife features a long, moderately narrow, high carbon steel blade with a pear shaped, Red SuperGrip Handle. Boston style is versatile and very effective at opening just about any type of size of oyster with any chose opening method. The forward bulge in the handle serves as a stabilizing thumb rest while the more narrow body behind it enhances a good grip for the rest of the fingers. The rear of the handle is bulged again for good support in the base of the palm. The 4-inch blade is long, narrow and strong with rather dull edges. The top and bottom of the forward section of the blade is gently convex. It gradually narrows and terminates in a flat, rounded tip.
Style Name: 4-INCH BOSTON

Victrinox really blew it on this. One of the most expensive oyster knives out there, it is also among the poorest by design. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Harry
So far I've opened about 200 oysters with this. I am still learning the technique. This knife is very sturdy and is holding up well. It seems a good size. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Frank

There are a lot of oyster knives. I have now 5 of them which is only mildly obsessive. This is my favorite by (thus) far. Easy to use, if any of them are. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ditch A
