the fuksas-designed ‘colombina fish’ set for alessi carefully takes into consideration the methods in which one eats seafood, boasting little features that make it simpler to enjoy. for example, the left prong of the small and compact oyster and shellfish fork is slightly thinner in order that the extraction the flesh from the shell is easier; the butter knife has a short, smooth round-tipped blade that is also ideal for spreading mousse and pâté; the shellfish cracker, not to be confused with lobster pliers, is a sturdy utensil with long thin arms, and is an essential tool for breaking claws and harder parts of the shell, while still leaving the flesh intact; while the shellfish fork is slender, designed with two curved prongs for pulling the flesh out of the claws and leg segments of crabs, crayfish, lobsters, prawns and other shellfish.
