Best Oyster Shucking Gloves
Wednesday, 30 May 2018
When thinking of the biggest hazards in life, oysters probably don't make it anywhere near the top of your list. But if your acquaintance with oysters goes beyond occasionally enjoying a plateful of this popular treat, you are probably well aware of how difficult shucking an oyster can be.
The only way to properly shuck an oyster is with a sharp shucking knife, which puts your hands, and especially fingers, at risk of sustaining deep cuts and injuries. At WorkGloves.co.uk we stock a range of highly protective gloves for virtually any task at hand, no matter how specific, so read on for our list of suggestions for the Best Oyster Shucking Gloves.
