Every fig collector needs a fruit sampling knife! I know, I know... every fig collector already has one, right? Wrong! Every fig collector has a cool or pretty looking knife, not a fruit sampler. I did, too. I carried a 4" folder with Damascus blade, cocobolo scales (what can I say... I'm a traditionalist) and polished silver bolsters for a long time. Price tag? A little over $200. It's a good looking knife but I hated getting it messy and found myself carrying a junker quite often. When I purchased a dedicated fruit knife life changed. Fruit sampling knives are not made to cut rope, open a plastic package, or 5-gallon pail (please don't try it with a fruit knife... you will be injured). Fruit sampling knives have long, slender blades and are very sharp. They're made to cleanly cut open a piece of fruit or pull a core for inspection and that's all.
This folding fruit sampling knife is a Kutmaster imported by Utica Cutlery who's known for quality knives. Utica has been in business for 113 years! So, they definitely know a thing or two. It's all stainless and measures in at 4 5/8 inches when closed and 8 5/8 inches inches when the serrated stainless blade is opened. It's very sharp! There's a cool stainless sampling fork for your demure side, too. Overall, it's a solid knife with great fitment. Although it's light, weighing in at a hair over 2 ounces, it has a nice heft and really feels like a quality tool. The fruit knife comes to you in a cool, black, Utica cutlery box and SHIPS FREE.
At the end of the day a fruit sampling knife is a tool. Yes, there are options which are a few dollars less... literally a few bucks. Those options have plastic handles and will definitely break when dropped. This one is all stainless steel. So, you might get a scratch here and there but the handles will hold up when it lands on pavement. I was able to get a great deal on these from AM Leonard and now we're passing the savings to you. AMLEO is no longer carrying this model because Utica cannot get them any longer. I guess that translates into, "The price went up and we're not paying that much for a fruit sampling knife." In any event, we bought out their stock and this is all we have. Get yours while you can.
