The Crack-A-Crab™ is a tool for cracking crab legs that has 2 openings, one small and one larger, to use for different-sized crab legs. The nose is elongated for reaching deep int the shell, and a cutting blade is incorporated on one side of the plier to cut crab shells open.

The Crack-A-Crab™ is a useful tool to make eating crab legs easier, and not so much time is spent trying to retrieve the meat undamaged. The device opens wider than current crab tools, accommodates multiple sizes of crab legs (King Crabs) and allows more time for eating rather that working to get the meat out.
