    Dave Ferry does amazing work in knives and leather...MANY excellent models and steels to suit your purpose.

    You could also look up David Boye, his knives don't rust.

    OP - I think nighthaxan would be the way to go, if he can get the steel you want.

    Just curious... is your avatar from Warhammer 40K?

    Nighthaxen is definitely still around (or at least he was as of two months ago), he just does most his sales elsewhere these days. He made this for me not too long ago.

    Large Lime Cutter (2 1/4"" blade instead of 2") with Silver Lightning Strike carbon fiber and 52100 steel.

    Really like the Lime Cutter handle of my Nighthaxan, small and big versions. For stainless, I also recommend DW Childress, he makes a similar knife in 440C and some have a bottle opener, very good quality for a very reasonable price.

    Would you go for the small LT Wright Northern Hunter blade shape? Another possible maker would be Hardedge knives by Kelley Ward, I have a nice kithen utility knife in AEBL too. Have you checked the kitchen knives section yet?

    Big Chris is making cool little EDC Cleavers that would work for this, and he does work in stainless.

    Lots of nice knives in this thread. I’m going total opposite. Dexter Russel net knife. Mine has become a go to knife in our kitchen. Cuts like a laser never needs sharpening dishwasher safe. So inexpensive it is almost disposable.

    Even better their Sani safe pairing knife. Less than a five spot each.

    hah, we use a mora 12c27 fillet knife in the kitchen for paring, a bit more money than those, but very much a laser

    Nighthaxen's real name is Charles Roddenberry. If you google it you likely can find a way to contact him.

    am I alone here, or does anybody else think a knife, just for cutting citrus for drinks, should be carbon steel and allowed to put together a knice natural patina?

    Chris Linton/Osprey Knife and Tool makes a cool little Every Day Utility model that would serve well here:

    I would personally want something with more lean blade with some belly (pairing knife style) but that’s just me. I really don’t get the cleaver style.
