The fastest, smartest way to pick crabs and lobsters


CrabKey's nose braces against the outside of the sturdy shell as its handle is lifted, pulling the blade up to split the shell from the inside out, quickly and easily recovering whole sections of meat without crushing in bits of shell in the process.

Made of tough Delrin resin and hardened stainless steel, this tool will last a lifetime.

Crabs are tough!

Nature made crabs hard to open on purpose. The hardness and shape of the shell protects the crab from outside predators, including you.

Getting to the meat is a challenge

The traditional approach involves hammers, crackers, and picks. It's a wasteful, brute force approach that makes a mess, destroys a lot of meat, and drives in shell fragments. Given the cost of lobster and crab, it's a problem that needs a solution.

Cracks 'em from the inside out

CrabKey unzips lobster and crab legs, bodies, and claws from the inside out – recovering whole sections of meat without embedded shell fragments.
