There is a kitchen gadget for everything.
This one is sixty years old.
My Dad made it because he loved quahogs.
We call it a chucker but I am sure you could find a fancy model on-line.
It opens quahogs so fast .
I keep a big bowl under the board to collect all the juice from the quahog.
Enjoy them raw on the half shell, baked, stuffed, fried, chowder and let us not forget with linguine.
