How to use your Georgia Oyster KnifeTM.
Hold the knife firmly in your dominant hand and the oyster in your off hand.
The curved part at the end of the handle is your thumb protector and gives you more control during the twist. For safety, we recommend the common practice of wearing a glove on the hand holding the oyster. Using a Shucker's mat will give you even more protection while shucking- with added convenience.
Locate the ‘hinge’ of the oyster and apply steady pressure with the tip of the blade. You will likely need to twist the knife back and forth to create an opening.
When the blade has opened the oyster shell, you will hear a ‘pop.’ Turn the knife to one side to pry the shell open.
Season your oyster to taste, enjoy, and repeat.
Demo of Shucking Mat:
We all hate wearing gloves at the shucking table. This mat protects you from steam burn & offers protection from a blade (unlike gloves & towels) when used on a stubborn oyster. You may find yourself using it more than you thought...
