Bird's Beak -- a fruit carving knife with a blade 1 3/4th". Very handy for detail work.

A hard plastic scraper (squarish.) Very simple, but very useful. Bought it for stoneware (that I don't use) but use it for cleaning pots and pans from Pampered Chef.

A sereaded peeler. It makes it much easier to peel fruit.

A citrus peeler from Tupperware. It was a freebie about 50 years ago. It's a plain yellow stick with a wedge on one end and sort of a "hook" on the other. It keeps the user from getting orange peel under their nails. I love it.
