Opinel No.9 Stainless Steel Oyster and Shellfish Knife

The Opinel No.9 Stainless Steel Oyster and Shellfish Knife is that rare thing, a folding oyster knife.

The design of this specialist knife is aimed at making it as easy as possible to open oysters and shellfish so, for example, there is an extended handle compared to the length of the blade for a strong grip, giving a the ability for greater accuracy in where the point of the blade is positioned to open the shell.

In addition, only the final 1.5 cm at the tip of the robust 6.5-cm blade is sharpened, which is a characteristic of the French style of oyster knife.

The intention of the design is to allow efficient opening of the shells and for the blade to withstand the forces involved rather than snap.

The handle of the Opinel No.9 Stainless Steel Oyster and Shellfish Knife is of attractive varnished bubinga wood which is resistant to the absorption of the moisture that it will inevitably be exposed to.

Virobloc safety rings keep the knife open when in use and closed when not in use.
