I had a regular customer request an oyster knife from a RR spike. This is what I came up with. Dose that pass for an oyster knife? :(

An oyster knife where I come from (Chesapeake Bay) has a 4" long or so blade, up to about 5.5", some people like the blade a little longer and more flexible. Blade width is about .5" and comes to a round point. There are numerous ways to shuck an oyster though. In Southern Maryland we go in from the opposite of the hinged end.

Great looking knife... I'll have to remember using a spike for that..

 

This is probably more like what the old timer oyster guys use just in case you're interested http://www.cookinglouisiana.com/Cooking/Seafood/shucking_oysters.htm

 

Notice the way the blade is shaped from the drawings...
