I've found that cheap pocketknives actually end up being slightly more useful that my nice ones, if only because I'm not afraid to really use them however I need to in order to get the job done. This one is cheap without being cheaply made. And is that not the essence of a good product?

I grew up on a navy base in western Europe, and one of the lingering vestiges of that childhood is the Opinel folding knife. My father gave one to each of my brothers and I when were were lads, and I must have abused and carved a thousand trinkets and such in the Scottish woods with mine.

As an adult, I now appreciate what high quality Opinel steel is for the price. It's stiffer than comparably priced knives, and holds an edge about as long as my Benchmade carry knives, longer than my CRKTs - for 10% of the price.

The non-serrated, drop-point blade is a classic, proven shape that is useful for many tasks. And this smaller size is perfect - I prefer the size 6 above the several other options. The blade is stiff enough for light prying without breaking, and you don't need to be afraid to use the tool as you need to because of its price. I give it four stars instead of five because it requires a little more effort than is preferable to open with one hand, and the opening is stiff for some time when you first get it. I love the locking mechanism for this knife, though. So simple, so functional!

Finally, this is a less "scary" looking knife - and has even been construed as "classy" in some men's magazines I've read. It is French, after all.

This knife is very handy to have for picnics or tailgateing. It can be carried without worry that it will cut through something since it folds away. I have used these knives for years and love the convinience of them.

A very sharp knife is a safe knife! Why? Because you will use it with more respect, and care. For trees, a knife can be one of your most valuable tools, and I believe I have found it with the Opinel No 6 stainless steel folding knife. I was told about it, so I thought I would give it a try, and they were so correct. It's a wonderful tool, and will do the job well. I'm going to order another one today.

I ordered this knife for its curiosity value, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a wonderful knife.

Advantages? Great steel for the blade -- very sharp. Also, the design is quite elegant, and the knife itself is well made.

Disadvantages? The knife is inconvenient to carry and use. If you are used to a modern lockback knife, this throwback design will be clumsy to deploy -- it takes two hands to do it safely, so you have to get the knife out and ready BEFORE you need it. Also, this size is rather large for pocket carry -- the handle is round and takes up lots of space. One of the smaller ones might be acceptable, or you might buy a belt holster.

However, if you collect knives, it's well worth the purchase. There is a big "conversation starter" value to this knife, but there are certainly more practical knives for everyday use.

This is one of those enduring classic items that was so well thought out at the beginning, it's a staple. It has a good positive locking latch, and is very light and sharp. Learn the "coup du savoyard" opening technique to make the most of this knife. The blade is just under 3", which makes it legal in most jurisdictions.

This thing takes a very good edge and keeps it fairly well, and doesn't weigh hardly anything. I started with an Opinel #8 Carbone, which is better in terms of edge retention, but was too big for my front pocket and I was constantly worried about rust.

Pros are the great classic looks, the excellent blade steel for this price point (12C27 Sandvik), the full flat grind (great for slicing and push cutting), the simple operation, the ridiculously light weight, and the low cost of replacement if lost/stolen/broken.

Cons would be mostly ergonomics. It doesn't have one-handed operation, it isn't very fast into action, and the lock is sort of clumsy by modern knife standards. The blade is also somewhat delicate and thin, which could be considered a con, depending on what you need. I would also say it is not a very blade/handle efficient size; the handle is pretty fat for a 7cm knife.

All in all it's probably the best sub $20 folding knife I've ever had.

I'm using this review for two Opinel knives I've purchased this week, the No. 6 and the No. 9. I got a little nostalgic the other week when I saw a person with an Opinel knife. My ex-girlfriend bought me one (forget the size) as a gift when she returned from France. I loved that knife but like all things, sometimes they get "lost" afte a breakup, lol. Anyways, I wanted a quality folder knife for everyday use. I didn't want to buy yet another "tacti-cool" knife, especially living in Kalifornistan. So after doing some research online, I learned that the most popular size is the #8. The #8 has a blade length of 3.25". The #6 by comparison is 3". The #9 is 3.5".

I went with the #6 because I wanted the least conspicuous size. Note that the #6 is also the smallest size with the locking ring. When I got it, I was pleased. It will be the knife I carry with me or as knife people say their EDC (every day carry). It is definitely a small knife for sure. I'd say this is the smallest size you should get. You can definitely use it for your wine and cheese parties and picnics without people freaking out about "your large knife".

However, I could forsee myself needing a larger knife for more field duty or camping. The #8 is the most popular size as mentioned before, but many reviewers said it was a tad bit too small when gripped. I wear medium sized gloves and I do agree that its a bit smaller than I'd like. I could forsee if I was wearing gloves, this would be even more of an issue. So I went with the #9 vs the #10 because it's just a litle longer on the handle. I made a good choice. The #9 fits my hand just about right. One thing to note at least with my purchases is that the #9 has a different stain on it than the #6.
