My first Slimline, an Eff 10 in olivewood.  It's even more beautiful in person!  It's an Inox and it's a cutter!

Many years ago I made a checkering tool out of a stick welding rod. Kept that tool like forever and used it on the Opinel. Here are some resulting pics …


Here's the small but important radius removal for the thumb stud …

I deals like they are just falling from the sky. Like a challenge is going to occur, in March.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Those are some very nice looking and functional styling you did to your’s. 

Are you aware that in March a group of us are doing a 30 day challenge with our OPINELS, sharing uses and pictures.
The challenge thread is here. https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,90877.180.html

It would be an honor and pleasure to have you join us and share your beautiful knives. 😉
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!
