Don't hold back Tony. Let us know how you really feel about Opinels. :lol:

I've had a couple in the past that have mysteriously disappeared but I still have two left. Since all I ever carry is one of my Camillus 72s, I can't comment on their usefulness nor desirability.

Too bad Camillus never made a 72 fixed blade, eh Jerry? ::rotflol:: ::rotflol:: ::rotflol:: ::rotflol::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Dang Vit. That one's a real beauty. I didn't know the Opinels had it in them. Of course I don't look at them very often.

And at the end, an incredibly stylish Opinel No 8 Ellipse. Photo not able to show all the charm of this knife (or am I a bad photographer :roll: ).

I have a few more Opinel knives. Someday I will photograph them and show :) .
