Very nice photo!
My French Opinel running rings around an Air Force survival knife in the kitchen. Part of a torture test on the AF knife.
I posted this somewhere before, but I'll add it here too...
Good ol’ number 8
Count me in!
Top is a garden #8 that I swapped a stainless #8 blade to. Stain is green leather dye.
Here's a few of my Opinel favorite's....
Good thing you said it was dye. I'd have sworn it was mold.
Didn't turn out dark as I would have liked, thats for sure!
I like it.
That's really cool! Did you carve those? Burn them?
Here you go folks.
With some fatwood.
No...I didn't burn the design myself....order a new opinel from their web site...and for 6 or 7 dollars they will put any words or design on it you want.
Love the patina - very unique for sure!!!
I made my #6 prettier.
Found myself across the pond for a couple weeks. Carried my stuff on the plane, so no checked bags and...omg... No pocket knife! Picked up this little #4 just to keep me from getting too twitchy from withdraw...had a little snack together on a bench. Cute little fella
I'm guessing France from the pressed cheese, baguette and knife?
Thanks, I believe I used mustard and a sponge.
Well, actually the Netherlands and Belgium, almost into france. Just touched down in the USA. Will post some pics in a TR.
I can't recall seeing fancier Opinels made from the base model.
A set of Opinels
My favourite #6 has seen some serious action the past week. I forgot my Marttiini shroomknife at home, so #6 to the rescue
That is a nice photo.
This is a great idea. Here is my Bubinga #8 i just love pocket knives best. They are just so practical and useful on a daily basis.
I just saw this video the other night. Pretty cool little mod I do say so my self. I was thinking about doing this mod to my #8 Opinel. Enjoy I hope you all like. Prov 27:17
My goodness, what a beautiful mess of schrooms! Yum!
I love that iron nail cross. My grandfather makes them. I keep mine in my truck with me
