My grandfather's pocket knife has been cleaned, oiled, and retired to my bedside drawer, and this has become my new utility/pocket/everyday knife. Opinel is famous for good quality, affordable knives of all sorts, and the locking mechanism on their folding series is especially well-regarded. I've had my eye on one of these off and on for years and I finally decided to go for it. I've only had a it a few days, and haven't had much chance to give it any use, but I love the simple aesthetic and functionality. I hope it will be with me through many adventures.
