Chroma type 301: Oyster Knife - P24
An oyster knife has a short, thick blade that is used to pry open oysters and separate their meat from the shell. Some models have a shield built into the handle that prevents the knife (and hand) from slipping and going too far into the shell.

The handle of the Type 301 by F.A. Porsche is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel, and the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. The blade of each knife is carefully sharpened by the hand of a master.

The advantages Type 301 are:

An ergonomic handle - designed by F.A. Porsche working with the chef of the decade, Jörg Wörther
A metal "pearl" that clearly demarcates the end of the handle, for better control when cutting
A seamless perfection and hygienic transition from blade to handle
A special grinding method is used, so the knife stays sharp longer and is easier to sharpen

Never place the knife in the dishwasher. Hand wash and dry after every use.
Regularly sharpen the knife using the original Type 301 whetstone. Under no circumstances should a sharpening steel be used, as it will damage the blade.
Store the knife in a safe, secure manner, for example, in a knife block so the blade is not left exposed.
Only use wooden or plastic cutting boards, never marble or glass when cutting with a Type 301.
Only use the knife to prepare food. Do not use it to cut frozen foods, bones, or as a utility knife.
