R. Murphy Wellfleet Oyster Knife
+ $ shipping surcharge
For those of us who like instant gratification -- and the taste of summer all year long.
Striking, sharp, weighted, and contoured to fit perfectly in your hand. This is no ordinary oyster knife.
The blade: 2 5/8 inches of hardened, ground, and polished high carbon stainless steel.
The handle: Bubinga (African Rosewood), brass-riveted, and vacuum-infused to increase stability and water resistance.
