A professional oyster knife that will captivate anyone, left- or right handed, due to its functional design. Embarked on a mission, Nik Baeyens got to business. For his oyster knife ‘adam’ he found inspirational advice in Australia. The result is ingenious and enthralling innovative. And hence ‘adam’ was patented. With its glistening solid steel in elliptical layers the oyster knife urges to be held. Tough and elegant at the same time, ergonomic and tactile. The oyster knife marketed by Point-Virgule looks ravishing and excels still primarily because of its functionality and ergonomic design. “I always kept the finality of the object in mind and could therefore rely on the extensive experience of Dwayne Johnston that has been opening all different types of oysters daily throughout the years,” thus Nik Baeyens. “Without his knowledge and advice I could never have accomplished this final result. We created ‘adam’ together.” The combination of Nik’s design and ergonomic feel and the experience and technical knowledge of Dwayne produced an oyster knife that can be used on both sides without the issue of left- or right handed use. “Due to its asymmetric layered shape and the length of the hilt, the oyster knife fits perfectly in any hand,” tells Nik Baeyens as to clarify the unusual design. “And because of the variations in thickness and layers the knife can be held in different ways.” Resembling a stylised oyster, the design adds a highly artistic feel to the knife. The professional and patented oyster knife ‘adam’ consists of a stainless steel hilt, which makes upkeep easy, and a high-quality steel blade of 58° on the scale of Rockwell. This is an ideal grade of toughness. A higher level would result in breakage as this level rends the knife a perfect ductility for professional use.
