30 day OPINEL CHALLENGE March 2024
on: May 01, 2023, 09:40:51 AM
Given that we have a fair number of Opinel fans at MTo, I'm a bit surprised that we don't yet have a badge for an Opinel challenge. I aim to fix that! Note that this is not an official challenge thread, as I'm booked up with challenges through July. Rather, I'm gauging interest and trying to determine what month would work best for awl who are interested.

If you don't have an Opinel, they're cheap. A No. 2 is a great add-on to put you over a free shipping threshold. And you can get them in quite a variety of woods and colors.

What say ye?

I only have one. This sounds like a good execuse to carry and use the #13 a bit more, and possibly to get a smaller one/ones as well.
So, I'm interested

Sounds like fun and I would like an Opinel badge.
August would suit me fine.

No, no, don´t get a smaller one! We all have those. I´d love to see anyone carry that beast #13 for a whole month!  :D

I've never seen one done like that AnneMarie.  I'd guess it was done by someone outside Opinel.  It looks to be an older model from the way the keychain is mounted to the grip.  I'd love to see what others have to say.

Thank you Barry!
Don't know if it can be someone made it, unless they have professional tools. But for sure the gold color painting is very well done, but under it, it's completly rusty and full metal.
Wish you a great day

And you as well Annemarie!  I've been carrying a No 5 for awhile.  I'm thinking about doing this challenge with it, or getting a No. 2.  Are you going to carry yours?

I have a No. 10, but this challenge might be a good excuse to get a No. 12 Explore.  I do wish they hadn’t put all that crap in the handle though; they could have shortened the handle and lowered the price.

 :nothingtoadd:

 :worthless:

You are all discussing different numbers so will assume the numbers indicate a size?

13 is big?

2 is small?

Do not own one, been thinking olive would be a good option for a handle.  Think they do that. I know Joker does.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Agree the 7 and 8 seem like a nice size for most tasks.

The No. 8 was the original and (as evidenced by preceding posts) still probably the most popular choice for pocket carry and general utility.

No. 10 is about ideal for me.  It’s similar in size to the Buck 110 and Case Folding Hunter.  So it’s large enough to handle just about anything that might reasonably be asked of a folding knife, but small enough to still pocket carry easily (especially given its light weight for its size, 2.5 ounces on my scale).

No problem! I'm still signed up for the Alox Addict challenge, too. I'd have edited the poll if I knew for sure it wouldn't skew anything.
