Into the bargain, how do you shuck oysters quickly?
Futhermore, can you shuck an oyster with a butter knife?
To open—or shuck—an oyster, all you need is an oyster knife and something (usually a towel or glove) to protect your hand. I've seen a lot of people shuck oysters using the wrong tools: butter knives, steak knives, screwdrivers, and even a letter opener. Don't be tempted.
Do you wash oysters before shucking?
Shucked oysters are available, but we recommend shucking yourself at the last minute, or even while your guests are there, so your oysters won't dry out. First, clean all of your oysters under running cold water to remove all of the dirt. Check them carefully as you wash them. There shouldn't be any open shells.

Heat is a great way to open an oyster, and the safest way to do so without a shucking knife. Cook oysters with the cupped side down, and the hinge end towards you. ... A closed oyster on a campfire or grill will steam its way open in about 15 minutes.
Oyster knives generally range from 2.5 to 4 inches long, and have relatively straight, symmetric blades. Since the point of contact with the oyster is the tip of the knife, the blade itself is not usually sharp, but the tip may be sharp.
