    Default Razor Clams for sale?

    Anyone know if a store in Anchorage sells razors? Wife told me it was too cold to dig them up there right now. Wimp. Looking for 5 # or so.

    Those razors come from the Polly Creek area.

    10th and M has them, I buy them once a year, costs about as much as a drive to deep creek to dig and I don't have to clean them... they taste way better too.

    Although indeed it can be quite cold, but from my experience sometimes they can be very easy to dig. There are times I've found them just under the surface. But that's up here, and I don't know what it's like down there. Have you tried it?.....are they still fairly deep down there?

    If you're talking POW/Ketchikan area there is no 'down here' for razor clams. I wish we did have them available in this area.

    why do 10th&M razors taste better than self dug whiskey gulch clammage? What tastes better about them? Are they commercial dug clams?

    The thought of not having to clean them is very appealing.........what do they get about 12$ per pound or so?

    I've bought from new sagaya in the past. Price has gone up over the years from $10lb to around $15 to $18lb. Never thought of trying 10th & M.

    They tasted better because I did not have to drive to Deep Creek, roll around in the mud digging the clams, clean the clams and then vac pack or freeze them.... I love clams but the work involved for the return is just not there for me, its back breaking work and I would rather buy them..... they taste better that way.

    Eagle River Fred Meyer's had razor clams in their fresh seafood section Thursday.

    Just wanted to say that Peninsula Processing and Seafood is selling them now in Soldotna. At least that's what their sign said as I didn't go in there.......

    Soldotna Fred Meyer has frozen vac pack razors from Polly Creek across the Inlet in the frozen case next to the fresh seafood. All cleaned and ready to cook. I tried one package a couple years ago and the flavor seemed the same as Clam Gulch but they were more tender when I breaded and pan-fried them. Can't say why.
