Japanese Style Oyster Knives- Videos on usage
We carry these osyter knives- http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...fe-carbon.html - and people are always asking me what they are and how they work. The japanese style of opening oysters is very different from what we usually do here, so we went ahead and found some videos that show it well. Sadly, they are both in japanese, but i think they will make sense.
The first one is a better explanation of the technique, while the second one actually shows the exact type of oyster knife in use...
Hope this helps make sense of how these knives are intended to be used.
