You can get a decent oyster knife for around ten bucks, but when you're shucking by the dozen, a better tool can make popping open those bivalves faster, easier, and more comfortable

That's why we think it's worth splurging on this beauty by Massachusetts based R. Murphy Narragansett Shucker ($37). With a thin, strong blade and a smooth rosewood handle that snuggles comfortably in the palm, this heirloom-grade knife is easy on the hands and on the eyes. 

It makes a great gift for the oyster lover in your life, even if that's you!
