culinary pocket knife? does such a thing exist?

Is there such a thing as a nice pocket knife for snacking? Something that looks classy, but you can wash without damaging? Preferably without a toxic firearms coating that scrapes off in your snack?

Something that can slice through a full sized salami or other aged/dried sausage/meat, but is still easily pocketable? Also something sharp and agile enough to pair fruits and veggies?

I'd imagine it would be like a cross between a folding hunting knife and a pairing knife.

Any ideas? I wanna start bringing meats, cheeses, fruits and veggies to work and I don't want to waste time cutting everything up before I leave in the morning.

This. About five years ago my dad retired a set of old Japanese stainless kitchen knives. We wanted something we could take hunting that could cut just the sort of thing you're after. We took the blades to a local smith, he cut and worked them into a set of four and six inch folding knives built on Gerber frames.

The buck is out because it needs to be a folding knife.

Wusthoff made one briefly, but discontinued it. No idea on the quality. Their forged stuff is still good, but it's not worth paying Wusthoff prices for their stamped blades.

Custom might be outta my price range, but it might be the only option from what you guys are saying.

Pocket knives are popular again and everyone claims to be a "foodie" thanks to Yelp going to their head. I don't see why this isn't a mainstream thing. What, people only eat charcuterie when its cut up for them on some fancy tray?

Buck makes folding knives. Also, check out the spyderco endura 4. It's got a flat grind, is easy to clean, and it looks good too.

Gotta go French. Opinel not the most durable, but can get em pretty sharp. Nice wooden handles, lockable blade, and cheap as chips.

Checked out their page, they look like they have some good options, especially the model 110. A few of their folders have the profile of a pairing knife that's nice for maneuverability.
