Great Concept But Not So Great Build
I bought this knife set to get the wood block as I was looking for a tool to help me open oysters without having the feeling I was on the verge of a trip to the emergency room due to an oyster knife accident.

I oiled the wood block with a generous amount mineral oil before using it for the first time and was happy as could be in how secure and safe I felt while opening the oysters. The wood block made the task much easier in securly bracing the oysters. Having the wood panel between the oyster knife and my hand let me focus on performing the task at hand. The wood block and the oyster knife performed very well.

After enjoying the oysters I hand washed and rinsed the wood block without soaking it and set it on my dish rack to dry. When I went to put it away the next morning I saw where the hand guard piece of wood had badly warped on the ends and had pulled away from the base of the board.

I was surprised that the board had warped as I had generously oiled the board and made a specific effort to soak the mineral oil into the crack where the base board and the hand guard board met.

I figured I could still use the board with the warp until I saw that all that had been attaching the hand guard part of the board to the base were three thin wire staple like pins that were about as thick as a staple in a desk top staple gun and some glue. The glue had pulled loose when the hand guard board warped and was no longer effective.

A couple of minor wiggles to the hand guard board and it pulled completely loose from the base board.

If I had to do it again I would have hand dried the board after washing it instead of letting it air dry and this might have prevented the warping. That said, I do not know how I would be able to hand dry the water that gets between the base board and the hand guard board which is where the warping occured on the hand guard board.

The wood board is a great concept but in my opinion it is somewhat fragile in it's construction. I think that the device would be much stronger if they used some small stainless wood screws or a wood pin/dowel type connection that would more securely fasten the hand guard board to the base board.

I hope you have better luck with the wood block than i did

oysters at home made less dangerous
We love this device!
I was desperate to find something for my husband for xmas. He loves oysters, so on a whim, I grabbed this.
I don't think we used it for a year, but once we did, oysters on the half shell became a more common night's treat at our house.
No more frustration about getting 'fresh oysters' at restaurants that aren't attached to the shell. Notice they charge you as though they've bought them and shucked them fresh, but if they're not attached to the shell, they're likely out of a jar.
Not that those are bad, but the prices should be less!
Now you can take back your power and have them at home w/o an emergency room visit (hopefully;) If you're in the Palo Alto area and haven't found Cook's Seafood in Menlo Park, the have great fresh (& jarred) oysters, a gorgeous fish market, and the best fish & chips we've found (incl. visits to England and Scotland.

Be Careful - Watch Out!
This didn't work out too well for us!! We placed it on a towel to try and steady it but it slipped around and ended up coming apart after a couple of tries! Staples were too short to hold!

As gift for son inlaw, last time we had dinner at their home is struggled with the oening of the oysters.
DEBI M on Aug 27, 2014
We recently went on a summer trip to California's Wine Country. We were able to visit Hog Island Oyster, where we shucked our own oysters at picnic tables on the water's edge. It was an incredible experience that my boyfriend and I have very fond memories of, so I am buying him this oyster shucking set as a gift!
Emily S on Aug 21, 2014
Good Price and it is a safer way to shuck Oysters :-)
Mark F on Aug 7, 2014
Looks like a safer approach to shucking oysters! I am a little concerned about the construction of the item as mentioned by a previous buyer, but I thought I would check it out anyway.
Follow up: I did purchase this item & tried it - it is not all that it's cracked up to be. It came apart soon after using & did not do the trick :-(!

Can I buy a replacement wooden block for this set?

I own the Dubost oyster knife set, purchased a few years ago from Sur La Table. The set is excellent; the best oyster shucker I've used. The wooden block is wearing out, and needs relacement. Can I order a replacement from SLT
JBO1 on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not carry replacement parts
Are these in the retail stores?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: These are available in stores as well as online.
How does this compare to the Zyliss product?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My husband thinks it is more durable. It is easy to use. I'm trying to wear it out! Hahahaa! We love oysters!
