People use a fruit knife to sample the inner area of watermelons, cantaloupes, and other fruits. They also use them to design tasty displays on serving trays. A great fruit (and vegetable) knife will have these qualities…
Size. The length of the knife, closed, runs from 4 5/8″ to 5 3/4″. People in the fruit business choose the size best suited for their products.
Material of the Blades. Stainless steel is the best, longest lasting blade material. The acid environment is hard on other metals.
Material of the Handle. Usually the handles are stainless steel, but to guard against the acidity of the fruits, some are made of plastic.
Number of Blades. They come with one or two blades.
Kind of Blades. Smooth or wavy are available. The wavy ones will cut easier through the tough skin of a cantaloupe.
Carry Pouch. Some fruit workers like to keep their knife handy, by having a pouch attached to their belt.
The most popular selection is the 5 3/4″ fruit/vegetable knife 95-113e.

The end of the handle has a powerful glass breaker and seat belt cutter. A pocket clip was added, to make sure this rescue knife is where you need it, when you need it.
Buck Knives started in 1902 with a new way to make a knife blade stay sharp longer. Their history got a shot in the arm with the ever-popular Buck® Folding Hunter Lockback 110 in 1964. From then on, Buck® introduced other designs like a flat stainless steel handle (model 327 Nobleman), synthetic handles (Bantam 283BK), camo handles (Bantam BBW Camo 284cmo) and the tactical style (Black Bones 870-BK).
In 2019 Buck® came up with 2 new designs. The Buck® Graduate 328 and the Buck® Alumni 524. The Graduate has an attractive burlwood handle, which appeals to the collector.
Buck® Graduate 328
The Alumni knife is a re-invention of the flat stainless steel handle of the 327 Nobleman. But this time, the handles are anodized aluminum, available in four colors. Blue, Black, Gold, and Grey. One of these colors is likely to coordinated with the corporate colors of a business owner. Their logo would be laser engraved on the handle.
