Opening oysters has never been easier than with this Oyster opening set. Use the shell knife to pry open the oyster, while the oyster rests safely on the wooden board. The knife is made from high-grade stainless steel, is rust resistant, and will last a lifetime.

Rest the oyser on the wooden board, pry the shell knife between the oyster shells, and then pop open the oyster. The knife and board should only be handwashed.

The Laguiole knife has been used in the south of France for over 200 years. Jean Dubost's family, inspired by the traditional peasant tool, has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. A bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products, was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial seal. The blade, made of high-grade stainless steel, is stamped, then ground and then polished in over 25 different manual production stages. Recently, the Laguiole mark has expanded to include flatware, wine waiters and cutlery crafted with the same quality and craftsmanship. Trusted and revered in kitchens and restaurants through-out France, the Dubost family is happy for the Laguiole tradition to finally reach this side of the Atlantic.
