Opinel no.9 mod
« on: July 03, 2020, 11:04:52 AM »
Very non original idea from the internet. Super stoke when I saw modded Opinels on the web. Ordered one and made one of mine own....... Finally owned one. Super duper happy with it.  :D :D

1. Re-profiled blade.
2. Acid washed blade.
3. Reshaped handle and coffee stained.. and a little bit of open flame BBQ.
4. Pivot tolerance adjusted and re-peened.
5. Added Spydie wire clip!

 :D :D :D

Wow! Length wise, you turned that 9 into a 4!

 :o :o

It's a stocky looking blade, now. I bet it can take on heavier tasks without any problem. Get a thumb stud and it'll be perfect!

 :cheers: :tu:

Actually for Opinel, if you search for in the internet, There are tons of mods. Mainly due to very workable wood handles and relatively inexpensive. Mine's a "copy" as well.... I like the one that I saw so much that I have make a similar one...... :angel:

So.... I did put in a thumbstud... At first I didnt want to as I felt that it kinda of mess up the traditional look.. But I eventually did as I still prefer to have a knife that's oho.. It's just not getting used much as I needed 2 hands to open. Not as clean as the original attempt, but hell lot easier to open and seeing more use now.  :cheers: But, there's one thing I notice about opinel... the wood handle is very sensitive to moisture, making the tightness of the pivot extremely temperamental.  :think:
