The idea for this 100% Canadian-made oyster knife came to Maksim as he travelled the world in search of new cultural experiences. Partnering with Raphaël was a no-brainer, given the man’s reputation as a designer of kitchen equipment and his special passion for transforming matter into useful items of enduring value.

The Oyster Butterfly’s sturdy, precision blade opens oyster shells easily without any risk of puncturing what’s inside. It’s made of a tempered stainless steel alloy to protect the blade and pivot system from rust. The handle is North American black walnut, machined and oiled to seal the wood and make sure it lasts for many years to come. All the Butterfly’s 13 components, each with its own unique design, are hand assembled right here in Canada.
