    Default I found out why they're called Razor Clams...

    So I learned a little about our clams up here in Alaska while on a trip to New York City. Going through a nice place called Eataly in NYC's Flatiron District I came upon an amazing sight. They had a case of many different types of shellfish and bivalves, one type of which was called a Razor Clam. When I saw them I knew that their shape was the real reason for their name, not the sharpness of their shells. So, here's a real Razor Clam, similar in appearance to an old straight razor...something new to me!
