Customer Reviews

Very well built knife that I would highly recommend to anyone.
Skyler Rader
These knifes hold a super sharp edge - and hold up surprisingly well to hard usage.
J. Bush
It's tack sharp, small, light, and has a nice feel in the hand.

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.

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 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.

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'.

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 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.

pros...a great little french pocket knife. small enough, light, and has a sliding barrel lock to keep the knife blade open. love that the knife takes a sharp edge and does a good job in keeping it as well. easy to sharpen or to hone the blade. has a smooth and easy to open blade. i love the color of the beech handle and just the simple and classic design for a folding pocket knife.

cons...the carbon steel blade will not be for everyone. it needs special attention when cutting certain foods, such as highly acidic foods and just wiping down the blade after every use. otherwise the blade will show signs of pitting and discoloring from the metal being etched by the acid or just down right rusting. in most cases not very desirable. but i have heard of forcing a patina on the knife blade, which will make the blade a bit less needy for attention and maintenance. i would have also liked a straighter blade profile, but it's not a big deal. otherwise a great knife as long as you can maintain the carbon steel.
