the orange peeler...i thought everyone knew that...jeez
1) You look their phone number up in the phone book
2) Knock and knot come from Anglo Saxon language and the k used to be pronounced, but over time, they were dropped. As far as iron, I don't know about you, but I pronounce the r, and I don't know of anyone who doesn't.
PS: I also pronounce the p in humpty and dumpty.
Ok, here's a serious answer for 1) poultry seller or poultry farmer if it is sold directly from the poultry farm.
You should ask: WHAT do you call....not how do you call.
We call them poultry dealers here.
There is no explanation because you don't omit the K in those words. Omit means a different thing, maybe you mean don't pronounce. K and R in those words as well as the p in empty or humpty dumpty are called voiceless consonants.
The word for (1) is 'poulterer', but I don't know if it's used very much now.
Call him by his name. The ks are silent, and the r is pronounced as if it was e.
