Comfortably open oyster shells with the Avanti® Deluxe Oyster Knife. Created with the cook’s comfort in mind, the cushioned handle fits nicely in hand, has perfectly balanced weight and is perfect for lengthy bouts of oyster opening. The wide, sturdy stainless steel blade gives you good leverage when shucking. A rounded hand guard offers safety and stability and includes a blade cover for safe storage. Easy-to-use, insert the tip of the blade into the hinge. Point it downwards in the cup of the oyster. Use a twisting motion to separate the top and bottom shells. You should feel the hinge pop when you twist the knife.
