I was just thinking that we needed a Opinel Pic Thread. Prov 27:17
Nice. Prov 27:17
Now you've done it. .. shown the saw again. Just when I was starting to forget about it...
Opinel #8.... a great yard knife!
Stickied this thread so it is at the top and us old farts don't have to try to find it....!
nice. Prov 27:17
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
My #6 completely modded. The #6 is by far my favorite Opie to edc, it is a very capable knife.
love this sheath.
That is a great solution. Forgot my SAK on a recent trip. I took my wife's vehicle so no back up (I decided not to inquire where her SAK's were). Did I ever suffer! I went to a nearby Bass Pro and was very disappointed in their selection of SAK's. I realized that I am fortunate to live about a mile from three shops that carry a great selection of knives. When I returned home, I found a SAK Rucksack on closeout from the Swiss Knive Shop, placed a SAK in my wife's vehicle, made sure a leatherman is in my archery stuff, check to see that my other leatherman is in my work bag, and immediatlely stuffed my SAK camper in my pocket!
Yeah, I know that uncomfortable feeling of not having a pocket knife... Makes me a little queasy just remembering... Reflexively checking my pocket now....whew, OK I'm good.
I tend to sprinkle a few of them in various packs and places too, but need to remember to clean those out before going to the airport.
Here is my #8 picking up the slack for a failed steak knife.
The steak knife killer is a block of frozen raw dog food - tripe. I was not even really pressing that hard, but the thing just folded. This is the second of my son's steak knives I have broken like this in the last month trying to cut dog food.
The Opinel bucks up the dog food like it was nothing.
I will have to get my son a proper set of steak knives instead of these cheap plastic ones.
Just get him a handful of no.8's.
Ha ha, now we're getting somewhere!
I'm a little sad this thread hasn't even hit page 2 yet.
Well I am hoping more people fine it and post. Prov 27:17
mine are pretty boring...
New lanyard for my #6
Oh, it's coming, just probably after Christmas.......
