A carefully curated collection of my favorite gadgets, gifts, and gewgaws.
THE NARRAGANSETT. Possibly the perfect oyster knife–strong, thin, straight blade and stunning handle with a rounded base (so your hand doesn’t bruise). Made in Massachusetts.
The DAMARISCOTTA and the WELLFLEET (plus a clam knife in the middle). The Cadillacs of oyster knives–strong carbon steel and stylish rosewood. Made since 1850 in Massachusetts by R. Murphy Knives.
When nothing less than Excalibur will do. Handmade by MIT knife genius Adam Simha. There’s a waiting list for these.
THE ESSENTIAL OYSTER. The latest and greatest.
Hand-watercolored block print of a Glidden Point oyster made by Morgan Scully, daughter of Barb Scully of Glidden Point fame. Available by contacting Morgan at email@example.com
THE HALF-SHELLER. A traditional Maritime shucking board, with a pedestal to shuck against and a trough to catch sloshing liquor. Designed by Canadian artisan Tom Littledeer. Made of hard maple.
A GEOGRAPHY OF OYSTERS. The book that launched a subculture.
THE OYSTER BED. The ultimate grilling package.
OYSTER GRILL RACK. Holds any oysters perfectly level, so you don’t lose any slop. Stainless steel, no rust, dishwasher safe.
