Two Fridays a month I manage the Richmond’s Certified Farmers Market. One of the perks of working at this market is I get to eat some of the freshest fruit and vegetables available. I needed a specialized knife to cut and sample the produce. My buddy Rex Foreman from ‘The Shaver & Cutlery Shop" located in Oakland showed me the “Farmers Market Knife”. It actually is called a fruit knife but whatever its title is, I am hooked.

This stainless steel serrated edge blade knife has a special addition of a fork. Its open length is approx.  10 ¼ inches and folds down to a tidy 4 ¾ inches for easy pocket storage. The stainless steel will make for easy cleanup when covered with sticky vine ripe peach juice. The razor sharp blade makes quick work of any slicing duties. The fork is a very handy accessory to have when sampling. This knife is very inexpensive and can be found by contacting Rex at The Shaver & Cutlery Shop. Thanks Rex.

I love knives and I collect quite a lot of them. They are very handy to use in the house or when I go camping. I've had survival knives, compact knives, name it, I might have it, lol. Some of my buddies even make their own knives and I've been a recipient of their generosity, too. If you're interested how knives are made, I've found a link that discussed in details how these blades are created. Hop on to this site, it's a must-read. See
