We featured Michael’s hand-forged oyster knife, the Mother Shucker a few weeks ago. Here’s another beaut from Carolina Shuckers that’s perfect for those mid-summer barbecues. Impress the crowd when you pop open a bottle of your favorite beverage with one of these. But don’t take your eyes off of it…someone’s going to stick it in their pocket and play dumb when you realize it’s gone.
Like the Mother Shucker, the Beer Shucker is born of high carbon steel and made by hand in North Carolina. Holding one of Michael and Kirk’s creations is like handling a precision instrument.
Who: Carolina Shuckers, Michael Waller & Kirk Davis
Where: Hillsborough and Morehead City, North Carolina
Why: No key chain or home should be without one of these.
You Should Know: Their passion for art, food , and the rich North Carolina coastal heritage fuels the creation of custom, hand-forged oyster knives and other kitchen utensils. They are treasures meant to be handed down for future generations to enjoy.
Small Stuff: All the twists in the design are in the perfect place, not just for looks, but also because they serve a function for the hand grip. Shipping, $4.
