Uncle Jack's Oyster Shucking Kit
He didn’t need a shucking 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 short-hairs, you paid real close attention!
Uncle Jack's oyster shuckin’ utensils never looked this good, even when they were new. His were all taped up at the handle and the blades whittled down so much they looked more like icepicks than shucking knives. 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 oyster knives made in America. They're quite a simple tools, really, but made extraordinary by premium grade materials in the hands of true American craftsmen at R. Murphy Knife Company that have been making these tools 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.”

The Art of Concealment
Aside from your decoy rigs, shells and a shotgun that aims right and won’t jam…our Leather Wrapped Marsh Flask is a required essential for complementing a full day on the saltmarsh.
And as your garvey skims its way home across the bay, the wind in your face, your beverage of choice keeps neatly concealed in this stainless-steel bunker of a flask, with a durable, duck-boat-drab matte finish. And just out of borrowing distance it stays from those pesky companions who never bring anything nice to share. But you, you will be generous, and you will be kind.
You’ll offer a taste to all, and when they light up with glee, you can say with a smile: “Oh, sorry, it’s all gone...I was just wondering if you wanted some.”
Bastard! they’ll say.

I like the knife and case. I am a professional oyster shucker. I would like the knife more if the handle had rounded edges vs. squared edges. The knife will also need to be sharpened as I am a bill shucker (vs. a hinge shucker). I have a tabletop belt sander so no worries about getting it sharp. Thanks
Hands down my favorite shucking knife. The thing is well crafted, high quality, and virtually indestructible. Thanks for the awesome knife guys!
…Though I wouldn’t call it a “kit” - it’s just the shucker (the tin it comes in is pretty cool). The handle has a great hand-feel, and the blade pierces the shell like buttah. I let my boyfriend borrow it, and he was so impressed that i bought a 2nd one for him.
Great knife. Fits perfectly in your hand. Good weight, very well made. Worth the $$$.
