We dont see these yellow-banded oysters from LA very often so when The Kid found these at the groc store yesterday, I was ready to do the happy dance. I like mine on the half-shell with maybe a drop or two of lemon & Tabasco, IMO you dont need much else except some cold beer to wash em down with. Cest Bon!

why do they band them? It seems like I would like to know if they had tried to open (died). Do they show the tag?

I would not buy banded oysters.

Tasting Woody Island oysters at James Calvert’s site, which is part of the longstanding Tas Prime Oysters cooperative (their Instagram account is coming soon!!) in the Pitt Water Nature Reserve. Although James lost roughly 70% of his juvenile oysters to POMS in early 2016 😓, he remains optimistic about the future and was glad to share some of the beautiful (and delicious) surviving oysters. He uses an array of gear at different stages of growth, beginning with French “pillows” / rack to rail for juveniles and then fattens them up using two long-line basket systems. In this shot, farm hand Scotty is hoisting up a container of his highly rare “Gold” Pacific oysters which were specifically selected and bred for the Asian market. #oysterfarm #aquaculture #oysters #oysterlove #sustainableseafood #Tasmania #pittwaternaturereserve #hobart #seapa #knowyourfarmer #farmtotable #oyster #australia #workingonthewater #tasprimeoysters

What an awesome day of Tasy oyster fun! Tasmania has been on my oyster bucket list since the very first slurp in HK (2010). Although the weather wasn’t optimal ☁️🌧💨, I felt like a kid at Disneyland. I’ll be posting snapshots from my tour for the next several days (weeks??) because there are so many memorable moments. Like this one- trying Bruny Island Oysters at #GetShucked three ways. #oysterlove #shellfish #eeeeeats #tlpicks #foodsoftheworld #seafood #sustainableseafood #oystersoftheworld #artofoysters #shucked #brunyisland #tasmania #australia

I still remember my oyster outing in Seattle (Sept 2012) with Jon Rowley like it only happened a couple of autumns ago. Although I was just a little unknown oyster newb back then, Jon graciously spent an evening with me, teaching me about oyster pairings and sharing many of his incredible food stories while sipping oyster wine, slurping amazingly vibrant Kumamotos, Totten Inlets, and Kusshis at Taylor Shellfish Farms Melrose. He introduced me to raw geoduck and scallop roe. Then we went to Terra Plata, where I had the best Fing mussels I had ever tasted. Its still my holy grail to this day. You will be dearly missed, Jon. This is a photo that I took of Jon just outside of the oyster bar. https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/obituaries/top-chefs-remember-northwest-fish-missionary-jon-rowley/

Whats the best oyster tasting strategy when youre faced with a spectrum of different flavors? Start with the lowest salinity first and work your way up to the most potent or lingering to avoid shocking your tastebuds. And in case youre wondering, yes, you should save that Belon for last. Many thoughtful raw bars will arrange the oysters in this manner for you, but it never hurts to ask. Of course, I dont always follow my own rule... sometimes I just want what I want when I want it. #oystertips #oystersommelier #oysters #oysterlove #shellfish #eeeeeats #atlanta #kimballhouse #oystersouth #landlocked #oystertasting

Happy #NationalKnifeDay! 🔪 Thought Id give you a little tour inside my shuckers roll... I have actually twice as many knives in my drawer, but will generally take 1 or 2 from this select set. Some of my favorite knives have been gifted to me by my favorite oyster people. Either that or Ive pillaged them from oyster wars. (Jk) . . .

Top to Bottom:

1 - Dexter Stabber style knife that Nellie Wu from Element Seafood
 turned me on to at the beginning. I used this for a couple of years but then found them to be actually too long and too blunt for my preferred shucking style.
2 - Tried and true R. Murphy Knives Wellfleet knife that I would recommend for anyone looking for a solid, versatile and stylish oyster knife. They also gave me the sweet shucking knife carrying pouch 😍 Favorite oyster accessory next to my GOT shucking glove.
3 - A beautiful knife gifted to me by Drew M Deckman which is my current go-to. 
4 - This guy made by Déglon was given to me by James Geoghegan (I did not etch chef into it) and Im still not used to the style. But James is a shucking champ, so... it does work! 
5 - Ah, The Shank from Murder Point Oyster Company is one of my favorites to show off to people. Gorgeous looks, great story, knows how to shuck.
6 & 7 - Ive got 5 of these knives by R Murphy, which make popular co-branded gifts, like from Legal Sea Foods, Sewansecott Clams & Oysters, Island Creek Oysters, and theyre super versatile
LEFT - The Nacre... the summer fling that I was obsessed with last year. But its strange, I havent really used it since. 
RIGHT - My iconic Shucker Paddy Oyster Knife with custom blade tip gifted by Patrick himself!
. . . . . 
Tell me about your favorite oyster knife.

I like the 3 wood handled ones.. that black one on the right looks bloody awful.

What's the GOT glove like?

I propose that your oysters have grown up along with you. When an "oyster was an oyster" . That was good advice then, a boston tip is indeed the deserted island choice. But once you began opening the itty bitty uppity oysters a finer point was called for. FYI the Nacre is an older design usually forged from soft steel for levering gulf rocks open. I have argued the tip is oriented 90 degrees off, and have twised both of mine to reposition it properly. Works 100% better for me.

#5 would be my choice. It's the most stylish.

your leather pouch is da bomb...

WOW! These all look great ! I prefer to let (anyone) willing to shuck my oysters choose, while I enjoy eating or serving as many as I can!!!!!

Actually I prefer the 1 N front of me with 1/2 bushel getting ready 2 go 2 work Maybe A coolie. Later

I Williams?
