He didn’t need a clam knife…’could open ‘em with his fingernails.
Alright, that falls under the half-truths-and-lies category. But durnit, you’ve seen his hands, right?...the size of catcher’s mitts and if he ever snagged you by the arm, you paid real close attention!
Uncle Jack's clam shuckin’ utensil never looked this good, even when it was new. His was all taped up at the handle and the blade whittled down so much it looked more like an icepick than a clam knife. But, that was him and you and I aren’t.
In memory of Uncle Jack and all that he’s taught us, we’ve hunted down the best damn clam knife made in America. It’s quite a simple tool, really, but made extraordinary by premium grade materials in the hands of craftsmen at R. Murphy Knife Company that have been making this tool since 1850.
Now if extraordinary is not what you’re after, don’t spend your money on these knives. You can get ordinary all day long at Amazon...at half the price of these.
Either way...ya best get shuckin.”
