  • My name is Alexander Bol. Our family has been growing and fishing oysters for 100+ years in the Netherlands. We fish and grow shellfish in the the Eastern Scheldt region. As a child I happily spent my summers working on our family’s oyster fishing ship. Moreover it’s special to be working out on the water and I look back with great memories.

    Growing up, I took an interest in designing and making products. Therefore I became an engineer and combined my passion for knife making with my family heritage. In 2014 I developed my first oyster knife.

    On a fine Sunday afternoon, my dad broke his cheap oyster shucker. Most importantly he was lucky that he didn’t hurt himself. However upon investigation I heard more stories about people hurting themselves while shucking oysters. This led me to create a durable and unique custom made oyster knife.

    In 2014 I was already into knifemaking, but I chose to specialize in products for oysters. Customers use Emergo Designs shuckers worldwide, from Japan to the United states. In conclusion I can say that I’m very happy with the inspiration of that one broken knife.
