Title: Shellfish shucking device

Abstract: A device designed to assist in the removing shellfish meat from the shell includes a frame that supports a removable handle assembly having a blade. The blade includes a sharp pointed end which presses against the hinge of the shellfish, thus forcing open the shell. The supporting frame includes a plurality of differently positioned slots to position the handle so as to accommodate different sizes of shellfish. The shellfish is placed between the blade and the frame and the handle is pressed to guide the blade into the hinge opening to separate the two halves.
