The razor clam isn’t as popular with anglers as the clam or the razor clam. However, cooked well, it will surprise you.
It’s a burrowing bivalve mollusc. Its elongated, symmetrical shape, colors and smooth surface give it the appearance of a real knife, hence its name. Its soft body is protected by two interconnected shells.
At one end, we find its head composed of two antennae that enable it to observe its surroundings, and at the other end, a powerful suction-cup foot that allows it to sink into the sand.
