A few beers, a bucket, and one of these RH Forschner by Victorinox Oyster Knifes ($11) can make for a great night given the right company. Each knife features a high carbon steel blade with an ergonomic, and slip resistant supergrip handle — ideal for prying open even the toughest fruit of the sea. Sold in three styles including New Haven (2-3/4-inch hooked tip blade), Providence (4-inch blade), and Boston (4-inch tapered blade), they’re the most effective tool for getting at the food you love — no matter what those rock banging sea otters claim.
