That's even more incredible.  The company wasn't even 20 years old yet.  A true pre war!

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  :D
Yes I recognized that lock because I recently bought one in Olive Wood.

Thank you!  I wanted to see what they were like.  Must admit I like the handles.  :tu:  I still prefer Opinel at this time.  But I will definitely keep this one.
