That's nice @McStitchy, love that handle. Not sure if I mentioned but I'm down for the Opinel challenge when we get there.

Inasmuch as I would happily use the No. 10 for all my cutting needs, it occurred to me that a more sheeple-friendly size might be in order for certain activities.

Enter the No. 5.  It is just slightly larger than a Case Peanut, so should be inoffensive to all but the most ardent of hoplophobes.

I consider myself fairly well prepared for the challenge at this point.  I’m having a hard time envisioning a scenario in which I personally would want something smaller than the No. 5, but it is interesting to note that Opinel actually offers three sizes that are smaller still.

I have one of each of said sizes. Perhaps I'll eventually snag a No 1...but I'm not holding my breath, as that size was discontinued nearly 100 years ago.

 :cheers: Frenchie! Vive les Opinels!  I have a No. 5 that is very nice to carry and, like a Vic Classic, very sharp.  Besides, the No. 5 was Picasso's knife!

I committed myself to the OHT Challenge in January, but I have nothing else after that.  I know McStitchy is in the OHT Challenge too.  February?

I believe there is a 100 mm / 108 mm SAK challenge in February, as well as a Combo Edge challenge.

Combo edge, maybe I can do that same opinel simultaneously I don't own a ton of combos so they need to get some luck (much prefer a plain edge) but then again none of my opinels get to play lately.

 Oh my I   :like:

Oak? And Carbon steel!

I was recently on Opinel’s web site (USA).  Not many options for other sizes.  NO.08 is the big push.

Not to say, I did not leave without an order🤪

But, I will admit the NO.06 is a favorite for more reasons than its appearance 😉

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

I really like the No. 6.  It was my favorite until Mrs. R took a liking to it, and now it's no longer mine  :facepalm:

There is a song out there I heard not long ago, has a line that states something along that subject, “what was mine is now her’s, and what is her’s is NOT  mine!”

Was about,  truck, dog, house, bed, but can imagine it can apply to knives as well!
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!
