I picked mine up on the cape at Goose Hummock in Orleans - long handle quohog version for about $70. I've seen them at Red Top for reasonable prices if you ever get up to the Canal.

Damn, I'm luck to have a gf like her!
Here's what she looks like:

She said she got it at Captain Morgan on Rt1 guilford/madison line. If she bought it there, i know she paid too much. I didn't tell her that, though. Thankfully, she really likes clams!

Came home, sorted out the little ones for doing raw on the halfshell, i took all the medium sixed guys and made a tone of clams casino, and turned the bigger guys (not even close to quahog size, i throw all the big ones back) into chowder. Sure did make a lot of people happy with the clams, and I still have some left for breakfast this morning! WOOHOO!!

I'll have to go take a look at their shop! Thanks.

Plus, if I didn't know better, I'd bet this site's Admin digs with one as well.
Just Google Ribb Rakes and you find thier site.
I dug a limit of quahogs with mine yesterday.

If that doesn't work for you, I'd consider looking at Boater's World. They've always had a pretty eclectic selection of stuff for watersports, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they had clam rakes leaning up in some corner somewhere.

I'd love a Ribb rake, btw, those look nice. Pretty happy with the C;lam Out rake, too. The ribbs have the digging tines welded directly, whereas the ClamOut rakes tines are also part of the basket, with no welds to break. My friend, a "pro" clammer (recreational, but he's in the watre at least once a week) has a nice stainless steel ribb rake with 2 broken tines i had my welder at work fix fro him last week. Not a big deal, but tryiong to find a broken tine, or make a replacement for something that shouldn't break is a pain in the balls.
