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™ blade, you will know why folks call these knives ‘the most thought out oyster shuckers ever created’.

    Best Oyster Knife I have ever used! Effortlessly “pop” oysters while standing at that crowded table. That means more oysters for me. Recently attended one of the many roasts in Charleston and my knife was the hit of our table. I let everybody try it. Had offers to buy it from five of my fellow shuckers. Keep up the good work!

    My name is Mike Geib and I’m the executive chef at 167 Raw in downtown Charleston. We had the chance to test out one of these knives and were very impressed. Our guys can shuck up to 1200 oysters a day so we know our oyster knives. We especially liked the sharpened sides for easy separation of the abductor as well as the comfortable ergonomic design. The bridge on the under side of the knife was great not only for extra support but helped with easily flipping the oyster for a beautiful presentation. All in all a great knife.
