I was in need of a new pocket knife to replace my old, heavy, leatherman with more tools than I needed on it. This single blade with a twist locking mechanism is perfect. I was between the functional size of the No. 8 and the non intimidating scale of the No.6--- it didn't occur to me to just split the diference and go with a No. 7!

Pros:
-Light
-So cheap that I wouldn't flinch if something bad happened to it
-Gentleman enough to use to slice an apple or a roll while eating
-Not too large for the pocket, but not too small for the hand

Cons:
-Carbon blade tarnishes and requires periodical oiling
-Wooden handle can swell with moisture and the hinge will stiffen until it dries.
-OPINEL logo on the handle is already starting to wear off from being in my pocket.
-When I opened the package there were no cookies inside

I am a professional bladesmith. I make and use knives costing hundreds of dollars every day, but I still keep one of these little guys in my jacket and give them out as gifts all the time.

Opinel knives are super light and easy to carry around. The locking mechanism is slow and takes two hands to operate, but it works very well. I don't know what steel they use on these but it holds and edge well and appears to be heat treated much better than most inexpensive knives.

The best feature of these knives however, is the way the blades are ground. No other factory knives I've seen are ground as thin at the edge as an Opinel. A thin edge makes for more efficient cutting and much easier sharpening.

I routinely carry a much smaller folding knife from Gerber, but I wanted something with a bit more of traditional look and feel for critical tasks like slicing off pieces of fruit while sitting under a tree. The Opinel fits the bill nicely. Not as durable as my little Gerber, but as a grandfather, I want to look the part.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this knife or not. It looks a little odd for those of us who are used to American style folders; case, buck, and the like. As soon as this little knife slipped out of the Opinel paper sleeve, I was hooked. The first thing you notice is the handle. The no 7 feels excellent in the hand. I know the no 8 is the most popular, but I think the no 7 is the best compromise between convenience of carry and utility. It has a swell just below the locking barrel and one at the end. It begs to cut something. The blade is of carbon steel. It was fairly easy to slice paper with the factory edge. After putting a micro bevel on it with my edge pro, it will cut paper with its minuscule weight alone. Time will tell if the edge retention is good. Generally decent carbon steel holds a good edge. The blade is a little longer but slightly thinner than my case sod buster jr. The blade can be deployed with one hand by pushing on the side of the blade as if it had a thumb stud. Not the quickest, but it works. The locking barrel can also be rotated with one hand. I like the lock. It is simple but locks the blade up tight. If you want to remove it, just put the lock on while closed and open the blade, it'll fly off. Be prepared to search for it. If you are looking for a tactical single hand folder, this isn't it. If you are looking for something traditional but unique. Get the Opinel. Modded mine a bit. You can see in the pics. Would recommend.

Got this for my brother as a Christmas gift. The blade is sharp, the handle has a comfortable grip, and it's ultra lightweight. The locking mechanism twists over and you're good to go.

I ordered this because I liked the old school look to it and the price was right. It was reasonably sharp upon arrival but I wanted to practice sharpening a convex edge. This knife took a great edge with relatively little effort. The lock system is simple and solid. The look of the knife is cool. I miss having a pocket clip and I can't open it one handed but overall I really like it.

I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said. It's a fantastic knife. Although the handle is usually pretty light. I lightly coated it in grapeseed oil and baked it at 250 for about and hour and it darkened up wonderfully. Plus the heat from the oven shrunk the wood a bit, and the hinge and lock operate much more smoothly.
Great buy.

I love Opinel knives, especially these classic carbon steel ones. I bought this one after losing my much loved old Opinel #7 that I carried every day. Luckily I found my old one the day that this one arrived, so now I have a backup. :-)

These make great everyday knives, and great mushroom foraging knives. The carbon steel is extremely easy to sharpen to a razor edge, and just a few draws across a steel will clean it up fast when it needs a touch-up.

It seems that the No8 is the most popular size, but even though I have long fingers and fairly large hands I still prefer the less bulky No7, which fits my definition of the perfect sized pocket knife. The great thing about Opinel is that you can get just about any size that you could ever want.

A tip for those unfamiliar with carbon steel and afraid of rust... don't wait for nature to take its course, force a patina on the blade and it'll never rust after that. My prep process for a new Opinel knife:

1) Lightly sand off the logo on the handle.
2) Using a larger grit, round off the upper edge of the handle so that the profile of the upper side of the handle more closely matches the lower side of the handle... (removing the upward flare at the end of the handle). IMO this makes it feel much more sleek and looks much nicer.
3) Oil the handle with walnut oil, making sure to get it in around the hinge area.
4) Wet a paper towel with vinegar
5) Wrap the blade in the wet paper towel. Let it sit for a few hours. (alternatively, stick the blade into a lemon/tomato for a few hours)
6) Come back to the knife in a few hours... it'll look really disgusting with thick black goo on the blade that smells unpleasant.
