Without doing this.

The best: R. Murphy new Haven Oyster Knife
OMG oyster. How do I get into u.
And seriously, who owns one of these:
OK so here’s the genius trick:
Isn’t that amazing? Really, it really is.
Now you can use the strength of both arms to wedge the knife in, but not stab yourself!
YAY! The best!
1. OK SO: Nestle the oyster in the towel with the hinge facing out. Then firmly but carefully, wiggle and work the tip of the knife into the hinge until you feel it snap.
Once you feel it give, rotate the knife and your hand to open it up.
2. Before you move on, wipe off the tip of your knife.
It can have some grit on it, and you don’t want that grit to get into the oyster / eventually into your mouth.
