Shucking Oysters requires a special type knife. The Chroma P24 Type 301 Oyster Knife is shaped like the Frenchman’s style knife. This wide, flat blade is ideal for getting between the shells of the Oysters and breaking them open. When shucking Oysters, a sturdy heavy knife blade with a durable handle is a must! The full metal knife of the Chroma 5.1cm Oyster Knife is more than capable of standing up to the job.
The stainless steel handle of the knife has a unique pearl embedded into the handle not only for looks but for control as well. This ergonomic handle design is complements of F.A. Porsche with help from chef of the year Jörg Wörther.
Chroma Type 301 Knives must be hand washed after every use. Never place these knives in the dishwasher, as it could damage and dull the blade. A dull knife blade is the single most common cause of knife related injury in the kitchen. Type 301 Knives should only be sharpened using the original Type 301 whetstone. Using a sharpening steel could damage the blade. To help maintain the edge of your knife only use wooden or plastic cutting boards. It is recommended that Type 301 knives be sharpened daily when used in a professional setting, and about every six months for hobby cooks.
