Malle w. Trousseau’s great tools for oysters makes opening these prized shellfish safe and easy. Inside the box you’ll find a natural leather ‘glove’ for better grip and to protect your hand from any slips of the knife. The oyster knife itself, or ‘La Lancette’, is a professional knife with a very strong steel blade and stunning rosewood handle.

To open an oyster, hold the leather glove in your hand so that you can put your thumb through the loop on the back and keep it in place. Place an oyster in the glove with the tip facing towards you. Turn the blunt edge of the knife towards you and grip it by the base of the blade. Then insert the tip of the knife into the gap between the shells, and twist to open. Use the knife to slice through the valves that attach the oyster to the shell, and enjoy!

Malle w. Trousseau was born when the founders’ daughter left home and she asked to take a selection of her favourite kitchen utensils – it turned out to be quite the collection! This reminded Isabelle Mathez and Frédéric Winkler of the trousseau that their grandparents would have received when they got married – a trunk of essential household items, clothes & linens that would set up a bride in her new home. Isabelle and Frédéric scoured Europe for craftsmen with a genuine love for their craft. Each item from Malle w. Trousseau fulfils their three fundamental criteria: it is well thought-out, well designed and well made. They are, above all, designed to be used day in and day out, and to make even the most everyday cooking enjoyable – for a lifetime.

Wash the knife with water and dry thoroughly after use. Not dishwasher safe. Wash leather gently by hand, do not put in the washing machine.
