Henry Hudson arrived in what is now New York City in 1609, he found harbors abundant with nearly half the world’s oyster population. The most popular variety was the briny Bluepoint, discovered in the waters surrounding Blue Point, a small town on Long Island’s South Shore. ... See MoreSee Less

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?

GLIMPSES into OYSTER FARMING

Oyster farming is not a glamorous job. In some cases, it can be quite dangerous. There are no instruction manuals or guarantees. There can be weird hours and even weirder seasonal anomalies. Things never quite go according to plan, and that thing you never hope would happen, does. Despite all of this, oyster farming is booming. I deeply admire and feel grateful to the women and men who work hard to provide us all with #oysters. It's kind of a miracle when you think about it. Anyway, here is a small compilation of just a few of the oyster adventures that I've had in the last year or two. Enjoy!
. . . . .
Video 1: Harvesting the crop at low tide in Washington
Video 2: A unique method of dropping oysters (like its hot) in Massachusetts
Video 3: Coming across local marine life on the farm during the night tide in Washington
Video 4: An oyster boat ready to return to the docks before the storm in Louisiana
Video 5: Growing different strains of algae in Maine
Video 6: A machine that sorts oysters using laser and puffs of air in Baja California Sur
Video 7: Pulling up ready-to-ship oysters from "wet storage" in Washington
Video 8: Shucking oyster meats in Washington
