It is in great condition for a knife that old!
That's even more incredible. The company wasn't even 20 years old yet. A true pre war!
Well Opinel just replied to my inquiry and they said it is from 70s.
It is still a cool Opinel FB!
It is and I love it. I think maybe the person is looking at the photo of my other Opinel, the one with Garden blade. I would think that is from the 70s.I'll keep trying, but I do believe this one is older than that.Plus the Opinel site said the lock was invented in 1955...so this one has to be pre-1955
Great historic knives! Here’s a different collar lock emblem...not Opinel
Yes I recognized that lock because I recently bought one in Olive Wood.
Beautiful knife FB! I was just looking at those online.
