Product Description

The Dexter-Russell Sani-Safe S122-PCP 4" Boston pattern oyster knife has a pear-shaped polypropylene handle and a high-carbon steel blade and can be used to shuck an oyster. The blades of Boston-style oyster knives are typically narrower than those of Galveston and New Haven oyster knives. The blade is made of high-carbon steel, which is harder than low-carbon steel and resists corrosion, stains, and wear. The handle is made of polypropylene, which resists impacts and wear, can be wiped clean, and is textured to help prevent slipping. A seal where the blade meets the handle keeps out food particles and bacteria. The knife measures 6-1/2" long overall, with a 4" blade and a 2-1/2" handle. This product meets National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 2 for use in food handling and processing.

Dexter-Russell manufactures cutlery and related accessories. The company, founded 1818, is headquartered in Southbridge, MA.

Works very well. Good quality. Unlikely to break. I use it along with a New Haven style curved tip knife. Between the two I can open anything. Unless you are a super pro, Be sure to use a stout towel along WITH a good glove to hold oysters, so your gripping hand is safe from stabbing. I've taken two people to the ER to stitch up oyster knife piercings through a glove.
For amateurs, Combining a Glove AND a Towel is like using a Belt AND Suspenders to hold your pants up!

Okay, sure, you want an Opinel No. 09, but you don't need an Opinel. Like all D-R products (go check out the diamond whet steel), functionality trumps everything and in the best ways possible. Whether you were taught to open oysters with only the first two centimeters of the blade tip or you like to haul back and put the big, textured handle in the heel of your palm, this oyster knife is a pure pleasure to you. If you've only used spade oyster knives, then let this be your first real oyster knife.

The Dexter Russel Sani Safe Boston Oyster knife is top of the line. After thousands of Oysters opened (shucked as they say in the trade) i can only highly recommend all the Dexter Russel Oyster knifes.

Which one is the ideal one for you to choose? Hard to answer that one, because it depends on the type of oyster you have in front of you!

For the medium sized Pacific Rock oyster (Crassostrea gigas) this one Dexter Russell Sani-Safe Boston Pattern 4" Oyster Knife is the best.

The product description is really unclear. There are "two" versions of this knife on amazon, and both sold by amazon. One model is the S122-PCP(this one) and the other is just S122 and is 5$ more. Being unsure as to whether those 3 letters meant anything I did some googling and they are the exact same knife. Not just pretty much the same, but the exact same. Amazon needs to recatalogue this one!

So, that said, buy this knife and rest assured it's the same knife as the other and save yourself 5 bucks

The knife is incredible, this is the 3rd one I've bought. Not because they are flimsy, but because I shuck upwards of 400 oysters a day and I don't always have time to grind them down after the occasional chip.

These are great knives but I like my wooden one even more. The blade is too long to be seriously fast with so I've ground it down to be about 2.5 inches long which gives me more control and better feel when shucking oysters at the lip

This is a heavy duty, commercial oyster knife. Tip is narrow and long enough to shuck even large Pacific Oysters. Thick sturdy black, large dishwasher safe handle. Highly recommended

this is a Good knife that has the strength and the width to make opening oysters fairly easy since here in Washington state you have to shuck them on the beach and leave the shells below the high timeline.

Great product and safer than other similar purpose products. Easy to clean and can also be sharpened but mine has seen lots of use and sharpening has not been necessary.
