    Hi to all and thanks for reading my topic. Im quite new in the forum and i apologize if this isnt the right area right away.





    So cutting to the chase im looking to buy a pocket knife with a round blade to it and i would like to get some opinions from the more experience people round here about it....... i dont know anything about knifes but i would appreciate it if someone could point me in some direction..... this is the kinda knife im lookin for :



    Basically i would like it to fold open-close like a pocket knife and have a round blade like these so i can use it for fruits (took these pictures from google so i dont really know the names...)

    That is a karambit ground blade. Otherwise known as hawkbill. Hope that eases your search.

    Look for a pruning knife as well.

    Are you harvesting fruit or slicing it?

    Those are hawkbill blades....Karambits also use that blade style. Many manufacturers make them....go to your favorite online retailer ans search for hawkbill....you will see lots of options.

    For an inexpensive option, look at some Opinel Hawkbill models.

    Opinel makes some pruners like the ones you linked above, and I'm sure you can find a vendor in the UK that carries them.

    Go to Heinnie.com, which is a reputable UK knife retailer, and search the terms "pruning," "hawkbill," "fruit," etc. There are lots of good options.

    Spyderco and Cold Steel make several good options, each.

    Another vote for the Opinel versions, though the Case one is quite nice as well.
