taping knife w/ rounded corners

Hello, anyone knows where I can find online a taping/finishing knife with rounded corners for drywall finishing? I got crazy looking for it everywhere on the web, seems that not even the major suppliers, eBay etc. have one, they exclusively sell models with square corners. Any help? Thank you.

Because when the corners get round, they are floor scrapers, not drywall knives.

They get slighty rounded after alot of use. Personally I hate new knives, it takes a few weeks to break them in.

hit the corners a couple times with a file to knock them down. Not too much, but just enough to round off the corner a bit.

Are you wanting a regular knife but with the sharp corner edge removed? If so sanding or filing as previously suggested will work.

Or are you wanting a flexable rounded paddle like knife used to create a curved inside corner often used on ceiling 'off' angles? These can be found at a drywall supply house.
