PUT 'EM BACK Oyster Knife

The Put ‘Em Back oyster knife was developed from generations of oystermen.  It combines all the elements of a traditional oyster shucker with a modern look at ergonomics and the physics of shucking an oyster perfectly and safely. This artfully crafted multiple purpose knife will shuck raw or steamed oysters and its sharp blade will cut them out of the shell with ease. Once you shuck an oyster with a Toadfish® oyster knife blade, you will know why folks call these knives ‘the most thought out oyster shuckers ever created’.

What Makes Our Oyster Knife Unique?

  • A portion of the proceeds from the sale of all Toadfish products goes directly to oyster habitat restoration projects.
  • Handle made from post consumer recycled plastic.
  • Japanese stainless steel, stain-free, rust-resistant stainless steel blade that is bent on the tip section allowing raw oysters to 'pop' open from the hinge.
  • Ergonomic thumb print handle design eliminates hand slippage making shucking safer.
  • Use two allen wrenches, 2.5mm to tighten as needed.
  • Blade through design creating one of the most durable oyster shuckers on the market.
  • Multi-purpose oyster knife designed to shuck raw and steamed oysters.
  • Sharp edges on the tip section to cut oysters out of the shell.
  • NOT designed for opening raw large 'rock' Gulf Coast oysters.

Buy one !!!
I’ve used a lot of knives and this is by far the best I’ve ever used. You won’t regret it, PS - some of the best customer service folks here as well, thanks for all your help !!
Stop looking for an oyster knife. This one is it.
I have used at least 20 or 30 different knives. This is the best knife I have ever used times 10. Oyster after oyster, no slips. I got a oyster rag in my bundle but i don't use it because the knife always opens the oyster without slipping. This knife is what I've been looking for, for years. Thank you.

Great knife
I run a seafood restaurant and we shuck a lot of oysters. These knives are hands down the best on the market!

Oyster knife
I agree with Phillip G's review. Great knife and use it several times a week shucking Maine Coast oysters. I was disappointed when the tip broke off. But it did last me a couple of years. Buying a new one as I can NOT depend on any other knife.

I had not ever opened a raw oyster on my own. A friend told me about this knife and said with its unique design it was a breeze to shuck oysters. She was right. I ordered it once it was back in stock and haven't been disappointed . It works like a charm. I shucked 25 oysters in my first use to prep them for broiling. Perfect tool LOVE IT
