Before I drove back home, I took the opportunity to visit the Cabela's store in Huntsville. Pretty awesome store and tons of cool stuff. Unfortunately I pretty much own all the MT models they were selling.  :-\
They did have an Opinel "N'12 Explore". Hadn't seen one yet, so I had to get one. :)

Pontificating particularly pious positions pertaining to polymorphic paraphernalia. G-Man.

Thank you, Spartan!
I am seeing why some people have the 12. Very nice blade shape and feels very robust. :cheers:

No prob brother! It's one of my favorite camping knives, because it's just so darn handy to have for chores :like: :like:. I unfortunately don't have mine up here now, but I'm currently packing my super 9 :cheers:

I've got a standard 12, bought it because the complete opposite in the Opinel lineup, the 2 didn't have the closing friction I wanted (and no lock).  For a general camping/outdoor knife I don't think one can do much better, aside from the Explore, which is Sandvik stainless and has a firestarter and gut hook.

Thanks, Cody!
I've really enjoyed the Explore the few times I carried it. The blade grind is really really attractive as well. My Explore is a bit too stiff, but I know that will ease up with time.

I had no idea it used Sanvik, so thank you for the info.  :cheers:

It seems to be Opinel's foray into multitools. The hook is well ground,  the fire starter is thick and hides well. The whistle isn't great, but in a survival situation, it may be useful. The color scheme makes it really hard to lose as well.  :)

Edit:
Spartan, that is very nice.  :like:
I need to get an Opinel with that color scheme. :drool:

I'm in!
Also included the Douk Douk and Mercator as I view them as the same vein. Lower cost, great performers,and lots of history.  If I ever start a true collection it will be one of these. 

Now time to sift through this great thread.

The 6 gets used bumming around the house.  The 8 slim is in the backpack and handles food duty.  The 8 is part of my EDC rotation.  The 8 outdoor joins me when I have to work offshore.

Can't pick one!
