Bird's Beak -- a fruit carving knife with a blade 1 3/4th". Very handy for detail work.
Sharpened mellon baller for scraping out the cucumber seeds, etc. It didn't come sharpened.
A round beach rock for smashing garlic. My knives are expensive & sharp & I don't like beating on them.

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.
