How to open a oyster without opening its mouth

1. Put the oyster flat side up on the cloth. You can open it on your hand as shown in the picture, but it is recommended to open the larger oysters on the table.

2. The oyster has a round end and a sharp end. At the sharp end, you can see the gap at the closed part of the two shells, and extend the blade into the gap. Wrap the oyster with cloth and then grasp the oyster to avoid hand injury during output.

3. The blade and oyster are about 45 degrees. Press the blade into the oyster. You can change the angle of force application or use a drill. As long as there is part of the blade in, you can turn the blade or use the lever principle to pry it off.

4. The blade and the body of the knife are flat on the upper part of the flat shell, stick along the plane, extend into the middle of the flat shell, and cut off another muscle.

5. Gently lift the upper shell about 5cm, scrape the oyster skirt glued to the upper shell onto the lower oyster meat with a knife, and then remove the upper shell.

6. The tip of the lower shell is to the right, and the shape of the edge of the shell near the body should be flat rather than curved. The direction of the knife is parallel to the front of the body, and the blade "cuts" down along the inner surface of the lower shell. Try not to use the cut to cut the muscles below.
