Wall Street Journal Off Duty Holiday Gift Guide - no.10!

Off Duty Holiday 50


Blades of Glory  (number 10)

Forged in Massachusetts by R. Murphy, a company that's been honing its craft since 1850, these knives have handles of pecan wood reclaimed from an old Chrysler plant. Of course, none of that would matter if the blades themselves—high-carbon steel that holds a wickedly sharp edge—weren't the business. One 8-inch chef's knife, one slim filet knife and one paring knife are all any home kitchen requires. But the back story that comes with them does add a certain something.

Wellfleet OysterFest - Sat & Sun, Oct 19-20!

                                             Enjoy good food, live music, arts and crafts, 
                                           the Shucking Contest and much, much more!


Come see us this Sat. and Sun. at the super popular Wellfleet Oyster Fest in the beautiful town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts.

We will have all our oyster, clam, and scallop knives on display and for sale - including our famous Wellfleet oyster knife featured in the Wall Street Journal last November.

"The Wellfleet" oyster knife is as fast and efficient to use as it is beautiful. This handcrafted knife, designed to meet the high standards of professional shuckers, is perfect for the occasional shucker as well.  Sharp pointy blade of high carbon stainless steel on contoured polished rosewood handle makes quick, comfortable work of shucking oysters from all coastal waters. You will appreciate the quality and workmanship of these  "pearls" every time you open an oyster!

Our gorgeous line of kitchen knives will also be on display and available to order.  

We are in Both # 33 right up by the stage where the shucking competition takes place.

Come enjoy the Cape on a beautiful October weekend!

One such is the Citron Pressé set, which contains all the accoutrements you'll need to pull off Food52's recipe for "The Best Lemonade You've Ever Had" with panache.From $3 for dried hibiscus, food52.com/provisions
