When it comes to shucking oysters, technique is king. But however good your skills are, a good knife is paramount for safety and efficiency.
We have looked high and low for a good knife that provides ease of use, comfort, and security in this task. Our search has taken us to Sakai City where we have commissioned a knife to fulfill these requirements.
The Kohetsu oyster knife is made from a durable and easy to maintain stainless steel. The blade shape is in the New Haven style which is wider and flatter than the Boston variety. The blade is coupled to a very well-made wood handle. The rounded smooth handle gives you a firm comfortable grip and good leverage. This handle will allow you to work longer into your session with less fatigue on your palm. The hand guard provides extra safety by keeping your hand from slipping forward and allows you to apply the additional pressure that may be needed to get into that shell.
If, like us, you are going to be opening a lot of oysters, you will be very glad you have this knife in your quiver of kitchen tools.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
