I bought a couple of Opinel #8 that have red lettering/logo on the handle. Does the red differentiate it in some way, or is it just another stamping color?
That's a nice looking collection of Opinels Echotech
did you do the black or was that an option??
Nice ones Ecotech. My latest arrived today. What I believe to be a Boy Scout version.
You’re right about the fleur de lis being French Jim, but in this case I reckon it is scouts and the figure is Baden-Powell, what do you reckon? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Baden-Powell,_1st_Baron_Baden-Powell
As a former Scouter I can tell you that's definitely Baden-Powell and that's definitely the World Scouting logo.
I'm no expert on this, but I think that's the World Scouting emblem as per the Boy Scouts of America, but it's also used as the official emblem of the Boy Scouts of __insert country here__. If I recall correctly, some countries adopt the World emblem. In other words, it was made for an international Scouting event, or it was made for a particular country other than America.
Very cool FB!
