    Cast my vote for a Vic Pruner.
    As a Solo but plus the little pruning blade, excellent for small works.
    In the same single 93 mm layer.

    Dang, I'll say, Sam. I wonder if the copyright expired? This current knife is made by a company called Swiss Advance and based in Switzerland. I bought one of these off of eBay a year or so ago. Really a handy and sharp little guy. The company also makes a similarly designed retractable three-tined fork. Can't seem to find that one in the USA just now.

    This is a cool thread. How about considering a Delica 4 full flat grind? Great ergonomics, good blade steel (VG-10) and right at 3 inches. They come in a myriad of colors as well. I have one and it works great for food prep. I always take it with me when camping.

    those are nice for an ultra-light option.

    I use the Victorinox Executive. It's got an orange peeler that also works great on apples.

    For a fixed blade TiJi's Sunshine Knife is relatively inexpensive, super slim, stainless, gets screaming sharp and has a decent sheath. Mine is always in my EDC bag. Perfect paring knife IMO.

    SAK always have been my go-to as a fruit knife. My other knives such as Spydercos and etc are work knives.

    But after watch virtuovice, I might just get a endura just for food-prep.

    The Endura and Stretch also make great fruit slicers and are part of my EDC rotation. Opinel's are a great bang for the buck. I have about a dozen of them and my favorites are the No.9 Carbon, No.8 Inox Garden and the No.10 Inox Slim. The No.8 Outdoor is pretty cool too but I haven't used it much as it is packed away in a survival kit. Opinel is how offering in the USA the Raw series of No.8 knives with an unfinished wood block handle suitable for carving it into a handle of your own design.

    Opinel is a good choice. Or a Kershaw Leek if you want something more modern.

    I just leave a Victorinox paring knife in my desk drawer. Stainless, 3", fixed blade, razor thin and razor sharp. Made for paring fruit (duh). Cheap - buy them for about $4 at the local gun show (they get stolen by my mother, aunts, cousins...)

    This. I keep several of them around, usable as steak knives and other food related. Keep one in my EDC bag with a simple, homemade kydex sheath. Plastic handled fixed knife is nice for sticky/juicy foods since its easy to clean with just a paper towel and some desinfectant gel or similar. They are easy to sharpen, and cheap to replace, even here in Norway.
