For the prices on these, it would be silly not to at least give it a shot.

That's MSRP as well too- I'm certain street price will be a lot better.  Still a good knife for $35 is nothing to sneeze at.

Doesn't looks like MSRP, if you look at the other items on that site they are comparable to the street price. But of course they could be price gouging on a new item.

The good thing with Opinel is that there isn't the usual huge difference in price between the US and the rest.

The good thing with Opinel is that it's a good solid knife at a reasonable price!  :D

I've got an orange one today, as soon as I learned about them. I never had a wish to buy an Opinel, I was always a Victorinox fan. But, what a mistake! They are great knives. I choose the Outdoor for EDC, in order to save my XLTs blades from destructive tasks and because it had a clip-point half serrated blade that the Swisschamps lack. I found more than I expected. It is cheap, lightweight, with locking blade without beeing threatening or tactical  (but it bites!) and the handle has a simple ergonomic design. I don't know if the whistle but it doesn't bother at all. It isn't as sharp as a new SAK, but the difference is small. It is beautiful in it's simplicity. This is a real Spartan; the homonym model of Victorinox is an Athenian besides this knife. Love at first sight. I'm going to get some more, classics and slims.

Same story here, had a look at them in my local outdoor shop and they left me a little cold.  Each to their own though. :tu:

I have been trying to get one but the dealer here has decided not to get them (yet)...

I have not seen them online (Amazon uk etc) yet, though with Opinels I have realised that I need to select them from a shop, to get one I like, as their finish is a bit "agricultural" some times. My only real user Opinel is my No12, filet blade.

I'm a big opinel fan, at first the plastic really turned me off, but I think I'll get one anyways.  It would make a good beater field knife, but ironically the $10-15 traditional models will be better taken care of than this new more expensive one.

Mostly I think it will be a good mushroom knife for my wife, as the whistle will help in the woods when we wander apart.

The shackle opener makes it easy to open the blade one handed. The plastic will not absorb water making the opening difficult. The serrations at the base help to start a cut at some materials, from plastic to bread. I love mine. I spend 22€, you can buy other Opinels, Moras and Victorinox for less but it isn't for rich people.
