The January 2013 Issue of OI

Posted on December 30, 2012 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)

It is time for the first quarterly issue of 2013. The issue has two parts - both parts are on the same subject, oyster knives. I had the pleasure of visiting R. Murphy Knives, in Ayer, MA, recently and took so many photos that I could not contain them realistically in a single issue. So I published half of them on our Facebook version of OI and saved the other half for the normal quarterly January 2013 issue. The company manufactures both conventional oyster knives and some brand new ones. The FACEBOOK version shows you how the conventional knives are manufactured. The NORMAL web version explains how their newly designed knives are made. The link to the NORMAL issue of OI is in the right margin of this page. Here is the link to our FACEBOOK OI page:


 Even if you have no interest in oyster knives, have a look at the NORMAL web site. There are some fascinating historic images from the R. Murphy archives that should delight you.

Have a wonderful new year!  ED

The October 2012 Issue of OI

Posted on October 1, 2012 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (1)

The October issue is directed at improving the experience of selecting oysters to take home and shuck. We have used a visit to Harbor Fish, an excellent seafood market in Portland, ME, as an example. A second source of inspiration herein is the conventional shucking contest. The premise is that we can all learn from circumstances involving oysters where special refined expertise is required. Enjoy the issue. Just click on the title in the right margin. As always, we appreciate your interest. Thank you.

The July 2012 issue of OI

Posted on July 1, 2012 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

You can "own" oysters. The question is how many  and for how long. The July issue of Oyster Information discusses this question and explains some nuances that accompany each scale of ownership. Do you want to own a pet oyster? Would you rather own 1000 in your own oyster garden? How about owning a few hundred thousand or even millions? Have a look and enjoy!
