Slide the Knife Around the Lip
How to Open an Oyster
Holding the oyster firmly, slide the knife around the lip of the oyster until you reach the other side of the hinge. The oyster should remain level, so you don't lose the liquid inside. Keep the knife inserted about 1/2 an inch and the tip pointed slightly up.
