Made with the finest cutlery steel, the blades are uniformly hardened and taper ground. Many styles are offered with handles available in a variety of shapes to meet personal preferences.

THE NARRAGANSETT. Possibly the perfect oyster knife–strong, thin, straight blade and stunning handle with a rounded base (so your hand doesn’t bruise). Made in Massachusetts.

The DAMARISCOTTA and the WELLFLEET (plus a clam knife in the middle). The Cadillacs of oyster knives–strong carbon steel and stylish rosewood. Made since 1850 in Massachusetts by R. Murphy Knives.
