Shuck oysters with ease with this oyster knife from Victorinox's Forschner line. Made with high carbon steel, the narrow pear shaped blade is durable and long lasting. Featuring a red and ergonomic handle, it provides a supergrip and is slip resistant even when wet. The Providence style oyster knife is versatile and very effective at opening just about any type and size of oyster with any 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, and the top and bottom of the forward section of the blade is gently convex. Best of all, it is dishwasher safe, making clean up a breeze.
