This is how it's going to go.  After I kick your A$$ i'm going to run you through the wood chipper and put you in containers in the freezer to use in my crab pots!  The really sad part?  You let an old man kick your A$$!!!

I have been known to use the pointy end of the large claw for a knife !  Works good if the shell of the claw is strong !!  Otherwise I have a long pointy knife I have no idea where I got that is perfect !  LOL  Keep pickin folks !

With all this talk of picking knives, I started looking into them.  I used to use a 6" knife to stand half a body on the leg edge and cut down through. 

Target has a 4 pack of cheap paring knives for $1.  Picked them up & like them.  I usually just use the knife to cut the tops off but even that is easier than with the big knife.  Picking the meat out with the paring knife isn't so easy.  I usually just use my fingers to pop the meat out.  Maybe one of the regular crab knives makes this easier?

I don't have any crab knifes, but I have 3 Carvel Hall oyster knifes. They are the standard by which the others are measured! 2thumbsup

My advice is to find the set that feels the best to you and go for it.  Like everything else, everyone has their own opinion.  I personally like the tru-pro from carvel hall.  I like the pointed end.

I'm with you and the Tru Pro style.
The knock offs (like Baltimore Tool) are fine too!
The point gets up into the claw and also good for picking out the body chambers.

I have some Casson knives here also but much prefer the Tru Pro style.
Again to each their own and whatever you feel most comfortable with.

No  Tru-pro are what the commercial crab pickers used and they have a curved pointy blade that and are one piece.  See reply #1 on this thread.

I'm not sure what the model name is in your picture.  I have 4 of those that some prefer but for the most part, anyone that eats crabs in my house, once they try the tru-pro's prefer them.
