Oh Toadfish, how I love thee. This is our go-to oyster knife for popping open Lowcountry Cups. Why you ask? Let me list the reasons:
Reason #1: It's a badass knife
This knife feels great in your hand, looks cool as hell, and makes shucking oysters way too easy. Seriously, it's like a cheat code.
Reason #2: You are helping protect the Lowcountry coastline
The guys at Toadfish go way out of their way to protect this great coastline. Not only are the knife handles made with recycled plastic but they use a portion of their sales to re-build the natural oyster reef. That keeps our water clean and let's us keep growing the best effin' oysters in the world.
Reason #3: Toadfish is local
It just so happens that the best effin' oyster knife in the world and the best effin' oysters in the world are neighbors. Yeah, you'll see Toadfish knives in raw bars from coast to coast but they call Charleston home.
