About $8.99 - OXO Good Grips Oyster Knife
This is an oyster shucking knife I use often.  Because of the low price, we recommend buying a few.  Soon you'll be teaching your friends to shuck oysters and having an extra knife or two will allows others to learn and then shuck some of the oysters 

About $14.00 - 2¾-inch Oyster Knife, New Haven pattern
One of my favorite.  I use this one often.

About $12.00 Victorinox Oyster Knife 2-3/4-Inch 
Hooked Tip New Haven Style Blade, Red SuperGrip Handle
I own this and often let others use when I am teaching them to shuck. 

About $50 - King Kooker 5500 Stainless Steel Oyster Opener
with Oyster Knife - I have not used this but I have seen it at many oysters festivals.

Be sure that new shuckers use a glove and remember, an oyster shucking knife
is important to use when shucking oysters.  Please do not attempt to use a kitchen knife, screwdriver, or anything but an oyster shucking knife.

Enjoy shucking and eating oysters, just be safe and purchase the right oyster shucking knife to use that fits your budget.
