I'm French enough to participate in that gasp, and American enough to admit there are worst things than peanut butter on crackers. Only for survival purposes only, of course.

As long as the n°8 was used for something else then just spreading PB  (i.e. opening the lid, slicing the plastic package, shredding a haute cuisine cookbook, etc.), all is forgiven.

I'm eyeballing all the "multitool"/outdoor models now, and I have a bid in on a carbone no 7. I think the 8 is a bit big and the 7 a bit small, it should be just right.

From what I’ve learned of Opinel, the No.8 series seems the be the “flagship” for the company.

I have one, and it's a nice size for around the house or camping. To ride in the pocket and take to work, it's a little bigger than I like.

Pardon, mon ami. That must be from a portuguese ancestor in your family tree. You learned that from the time you (tried to) invade us, back in the 1800s.

I am very happy to have any kind of association with any quality product!

And having to choose between whether my family comes from the Home of Opinel or the Home of Wenger..... Well that's a hard choice, but both are good!

Well the Alps are more of a in-between frontier, so you could arguably just see your family history as being both as the same time.  :D

I have one as well, and I think it's my favorite "hobo set". Folds up fairly small, and gives you good quality full size utensils.

A pretty good little knife. Its distress whistle will get one’s attention. One negative! I couldn’t fit the fork or spoon, from the No.8 Picnic, in the Otdoors knife.  So if you want to interchange parts, not happening :rant:
