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

The Opinel #7 is an excellent little pocket knife. The handle fills the hand well, the blade geometry is great for opening mail or boxes and works acceptable for food chores. The lock is positive in both the open and closed positions. The materials are good, using a high carbon steel for the blade. Because of this, the blade will stain and rust if not maintained, but takes and holds an excellent edge.

Normally, I prefer the #8, a little bit longer, as it is better for making sandwiches, etc, but I am forced to spend time in the company of hoplophobes who have bladder control issues in the presence of a responsible adult holding a general purpose tool with a sharp edge, so the #7, with its reduced size is a compromise between a tool-using animal using tools and the irrational and unreasoning fears of people whom Coriolanus would have described as 'fragements'.

Great little knife! It's lightweight and very comfortable in my pocket, and looks nicer than most modern pocketknives; classy and artsy, not crude like so many "tactical" knives sold these days. The blade on the No. 7 measures about 3 1/8th inch so it's long enough to be useful but not too bulky in my pocket, and it took a razor-sharp edge with my old stone (I'll take carbon steel over stainless any day). The locking mechanism can be operated with one thumb once you get used to it. The ink is rubbing off the handle after only a couple of weeks, but that doesn't bother me. If there was one thing I could change, it would be to make the blade slightly thicker. These would make a great little affordable gifts.

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.

It's a great knife for a great price. The wooden handle is light and sturdy. I find the no 7 the perfect size for me to carry around in my pocket. I wouldn't use it for batoning unless I had to, but for normal day-to-day duties, it works just fine. I use it for cutting cardboard, strip wires, cut open animal feed, and that sort of thing. I'm finding I prefer it to my now grotesquely expensive benchmades because it's combination of utility, lightness, appearance, natural construction, and blade quality. It also doesn't hurt that if for some reason I destroy the blade prying or something, I won't be out a $100 knife.

This is a great little knife. I wish I had bought one sooner! It was very sharp from the factory. It holds its edge well. Best of all I do not notice its weight in my pocket. I live in a humid summer climate and the wooden handle can swell a bit on super humid days thus making the blade a bit stubborn to open. Not big deal for me. I also purchased a #9 but prefer the size of this #7 as an everyday pocket knife. My #9 gets used most often in the kitchen. I love them both...

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.

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.
