Oyster-Shucking-Holder-Thingy Face

For every food (Turn, turn, turn)
There is a gadget (Turn, turn, turn)
And an end for every seafood under Heaven.

Maybe not. But there is an oyster-shucking holder thingy, and this one had a face. Say, “Ahhhh.”

    It easily is the cleanest oyster-shucking-holder-thingy that I’ve seen. I can say this with reasonable confidence because it also is the only such thingy I have seen.

  2. Jim Robertson says:

    Fully agree with what Ralph said above. That little “invention” I am sure saves many stabbed hands shucking oysters the normal way.

  3. Jim Taylor says:

    But how does it work? (I once thought I would be an engineer, and I still ask those questions.)

      Jim T – You put the oyster in lengthwise, push the top down and clamp your hand around the end. In theory this immobilizes the oyster while you lever the shucking knife into the shell’s crack.

    I didn’t know there was such a thing, let alone that it sighs.
