Pacific razor clam
(Aka Siliqua patula)

Pacific razor clams are a large, edible clam that is found on the Pacific Coast from Alaska to California.

It has an elongated oblong narrow shell, which ranges from 3 to 11 inches in length. The small ones are in California; they get larger as you head north.

Important: they can sometimes accumulate dangerous levels of domoic acid, a marine toxin.
