Meet the “Original” oyster knife

A custom made knife out of RWL34 stainless steel and Paduk wood. This shucker is a limited edition of 50 pieces. In the video I show how I made number 1.

Gorgeous wood

For this knife we use the beautiful red Paduk wood. It’s a hardwood with a remarkable colour and grain. It is very fine and does not feel rough at all.

The knife itself is very ergonomically. The large handle gives good grip and control. This allows the user to easily enter the oyster with less risk for the hand that is holding the oyster.

Paduk wood is used as handle material on the ''Original'' oyster knife.
This custom oyster opening tool is No31 in a limited edition of 50 pieces.

Stainless super steel

The sharp point of the knife can only be maintained because of the RWL34 steel. This pure Swedish powder steel is state of the art and very corrosion resistant.

Powder steels are molten in a crucible without the influence of air. Therefore there are no air bubbles inside the steel and this makes it less prone to breaking. That’s why it’s a superb steel for opening tough oysters.

Traditional and modern

It has a mosaic handle pin that symbolizes a ”Zeeuwse knoop”: a traditional local symbol of decoration. It is well know in the province of ”Zeeland” where my family has been growing and fishing oysters for over 100 years.

The handle pin combines a traditional element with the clean and elegant design of the knife.
