Maybe because it's French, I dunno? But I'm loving this little Opinel folder. It was gifted to me at Christmas. It's razor sharp and just so different from my daily carry Benchmade's or Spyderco. I just feel kinda fancy when I'm carrying it, especially in its factory leather sheath.
What's the sense in working hard if you never get to play?
I LOVE my Opinels! I have a 6, 8, 10 slim, and now a 12. They are wonderful in the kitchen. Thin, sharp, and just plain useful. I usually carry a Benchmade, Spyderco, or ZT. I was very surprised at how much I love my Opinels.
Opinels are just cool. They sharpen quickly and easily and get razor sharp. The rolling collar makes for a very strong knife too. Light to carry. Inexpensive too. What's not to like??
Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................
Treat yourself to one with a figured-wood handle for the times you wear a suit.
Great, inexpensive knives that cut way above their price point. I keep a #8 & #9 in carbon steel handy in the house for a bunch of cutting needs be it a letter, package, an apple or a loose thread. Always handy though I could have easily gone with a smaller model these fit my hand well if and when I slip one beside my wallet on the way out the door.
Based on the thread comments, gonna get an Opinel.
My EDC Spyderco Endura will spend some time in the drawer.

Opinels are good knives, and at the price, are tremendous knives.
They have a solid lock, good steel, great blade geometry (very thin and are great cutters). They sharpen up nicely.
