Opinel and Peasant knife owners club
« on: April 05, 2017, 03:55:52 AM »
I've recently gotten into carrying Opinels and Sword peasant knives, and the more I carry them, the more I love em! I guess it's just the simplicity of them, and yet they cut better than some of my high end knives. I was wondering if anyone else on the forum carries either a peasant knife, or an opinel. I'm planning on getting some outdoor pics of these beasts in action. For this first post, I'm just going to show all four, here are my Two peasant knives, along with my opinel number 6 and number 9.   :tu:

Sent a distant buddy an extra SAK I had laying around and this showed up in the mail Monday.   :mail:

I'd never seen one before, love the locking mechanism.  What a cool knife!   For me personally it (No.  8 ) is a little past my pocket carry size, but I'll probably keep it in El Jeep.  Put the Soldier in there for size comparison... and I just like taking pictures of it!  :D

 :cheers:

Everyone is seeing Opinel on the side?  Or is it the other way around?

My favorite Opie pattern is the "Coghlans" style..... best blade shape, best handle shape, IMO.

Coghlans in Nos 7, 8 and 9, plus a Le Savoyard in Inox.
