Title: Opinel and Peasant knife owners club
Post by: Spartan19 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

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.

Yep.  That's why I was asking how others treat the handle to avoid this.

And I saw it today, just a few days after I removed the Opinel Jardin from my EDC. I carried it for 3 years and familiarized with it after inscripting with a pyrograph.
I usually give away Opinels but I also keep a few.

Are any of you guys having issues with the wood handles swelling badly? I've been having trouble with my No. 9 for a few months now. I've tried putting it in the sun during the day, and it seems to help for a while, but by the next day, it's all swelled up again. Any Ideas? ???
Title: Re: Opinel and Peasant knife owners club
Post by: LoopCutter on July 04, 2017, 07:40:31 PM
^ it would seem the wood is not sealed and is swelling from the humidity. 
I wonder if you would apply mineral oil to the handle, and wipe it down if it would help.   I did that to my cutting boards that I made some 40 years ago and still do on occasion for mom's and grandma's (now mine).

OK, thanks Loopcutter, I'll have to give that a try and see what happens. I left it on the dashboard of my car today to see if the heat from the sun might cut down on the swelling.

I think you may have already mentioned, but how do you like it compared to SS?  Be careful not to get salt water on it!  I just watched a video of someone leaving their carbon Opi in a glass of salt water and it's crazy how fast it changed after a couple days.   But I HARDLY EVER store my SAKs in salt water anyway, lol.

Stays sharper longer... other advantages?   :cheers:

Oh, memories... Summer camp as a kid in France back end of the 70s and just having enough money to buy me a smaller Opinel, I even modded it (already??) with a small lanyard eyelet screwed into the handle. I'd had it for a long time since then but then lost it... pity. I might attempt a renewed acquaintance...

Oh, memories... Summer camp as a kid in France back end of the 70s and just having enough money to buy me a smaller Opinel, I even modded it (already??) with a small lanyard eyelet screwed into the handle. I'd had it for a long time since then but then lost it... pity. I might attempt a renewed acquaintance...

I've still got two No 7's but I think I'll end up giving these away. They're great knives that take a wicked edge, but they never find their way into my pocket.  :-\

I'll either pocket a SAK or another spring knife (traditional slippie). There's simply no reason for me to choose the Opinel instead. :shrug:

Inox - I just checked again to be absolutely sure. The one I had when I went to school wasn't, that makes it a carbon steel by default doesn't it? Not sure they even sold Inoxes back in those days, but I'm sure hordes of fellow Opinel owners will jump up to enlighten us now.  :D

Same here, it's nice to pull one out to carry that doesn't see a lot of pocket time. I just got done moving a few of my knives into the boxes for later on down the road. I'm trying to limit my EDC selection as much as possible ( for now :D).

Some awesome collections and PKs posted here! Two PKs have found me in my life. A Marjacq stainless and Opinel #8 pruning knife.
I have carried the Marjacq a few times, but rarely have an occasion to carry the #8 Opinel hawkbill. I don't do a lot of pruning.  :P Cool knives though!
They have two of my favorite features in a  wood handled knife. Light and locking blade. :)

Opinels are my only non SAK folding knives these days. My two number 8's are daily service knives in the work shop out back and the kitchen. I love how Opinels cut. I will soon be getting a number 6 and maybe a number 4 to replace my "peanut' class of pocket knives.

Sometimes the Opinel gets teemed up wth my trusty tinker.

Nice collection! Of the different sizes out there, my all time favorite would have to be the the No. 9. I just love the big blade for heavy duty work, and it carries well in the pocket  for it's size. The No. 6 is a great EDC pocket blade in that it doesn't take up a lot of space, but is still a very capable little blade. Here is my current collection. Starting from top to bottom: No. 6, No. 8, No. 8 Outdoor, No. 9, My modded Super 9, No. 12 Explore, and my two Svords.  :cheers:

Nice collection! Of the different sizes out there, my all time favorite would have to be the the No. 9. Starting from top to bottom: No. 6, No. 8, No. 8 Outdoor, No. 9, My modded Super 9, No. 12 Explore, and my two Svords.  :cheers:

Does anyone else aside from me not bother with the ring lock for most cutting jobs?

I had a few outright friction folders over the years like the Japanese Higonokami and the Sardinian Resolza, and I started to use my Opinels like them. I have the pivot rivet snugged up so the blade is a snug fit, but still openable when wet. Most times I don't bother twisting the lock and just depend on the cutting force keeping the blade open.

When I first read that the virobloc ring wan't added to the Opinel until 1955, that was very interesting to me. All the years with slip joints made me think that maybe I don't need the lock. After all, Joseph Opinel didn't invent the peasants knife, he was just the first one to put the design into mass production. Before that, the peasants knife was sort of a locally produced by blacksmith/craftsmen thing.

So, for a few years now, I've been using the Opinel as a pure friction folder peasants knife like the true penny knife of the European working class. I still have all my fingers so far.  :D

I don´t use the lock very often. Mainly because I forget to. And I haven´t lost any fingers either.

For a while, you didn't need to with my one No. 9, the handles was so badly swollen that you could barely open the blade :poh:

Today at work, about half an inch of the tip of my Opinel #12 woodsaw snapped off.
I may have put too much forward/downward force on it. Stupid, right.  :facepalm:
I just kept on sawing though.

It served me well for 15 about months now, 4 days a week.
I like it so much that this evening, when I got home, I ordered another one.
It should be here this time tomorrow, only E 26 to my door.
I´ll shoot a comparison pic when it arrives.

In the picture my other #12, a #10 pruner, and a #8 gardener

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. 

Title: Re: Opinel and Peasant knife owners club
Post by: gerleatherberman on July 09, 2018, 05:01:31 AM
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:

Thanks GBLM! I like the No.12 and FLIK :like: :like:

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!

I included the K55K because its slim, single blade, inexpensive- though not actually a peasants knife or penny knife.
I was only 1 when city tough guys carried it, 1950s....  :whistle:
