Damascus Steel Oyster Knife

Oysters are a special to me and many other people. It is a pure product from the sea. No manipulation, no growing optimization and no filling. Just water, salt and time. My family has been growing oysters for more than a 100 years and it inspired me to make my first oyster knife 4 years ago.

After shipping every oyster knife I ever made, it was time to make one for myself. The steel used is Damasteel Thor pattern. It is a stainless forge welded damascus steel that has a beautiful organic pattern. For me it resembles the raw and organic lines of an oyster. Therefore this knife is not just an oyster opening tool, it is art as well.
