As with every Opinel knife that I have ever owned, this represents tremendous value for a quality knife.

The orange colour is actually a practical choice as it stands out very well against grass and the lanyard further reduces the chances of it being mislaid in the middle of nowhere (Possibly a bad business decision by Opinel as I may now take slightly longer to lose this one).

The blade arrives sharp, doesn't corrode (much, after a good deal of improper care) and sharpens to a very good edge when required.

In summary, it just does its job very well.

I usually carry a pen knife of some description as I frequently have found them useful for any number of small jobs.

I bought this as my first Opinel after hearing many good things about them for years. it's light weight is unobtrusive in the pocket and the shape of the wood handle is comfortable in the hand. Given the stated 7.5 cm length i though that this would fall within the UK legal requirement for knives that you can have in public. They must not exceed 3 inches (7.65 cm). There must be some manufacturing variation as the blade on mine was 7.75 cm and would be considered an offensive weapon in the UK.

I shaved a little off the tip by converting it to a drop point blade to bring it into 3 inches. I also removed the locking collar to meet the UK requirement of only folding non locking knives being legal. It's not hard to place the locking collar back on if you want to.

having said that the stainless steel blade came very sharp and has proven to be stainless and hold a good edge for all sorts of little jobs. it's easy enough to refresh the edge on the blade with the right kit. I would recommend it, but if you want something that you can carry if you're out and about in the UK it may be simpler to get the next size down (No 6).

Great little knife - a variation on the Opinel No7, with a 3-inch steel blade stamped 'Opinel Inox' (easy to sharpen, but already pretty sharp!) and the patented twist and lock system to hold it secure when open. The curved handle is just big enough for my hand with my index finger snug behind the locking ring. Finished in a sky blue, with 'Opinel Savoi France' stamped on the handle and a short lanyard at the base. Quite stiff to open from new, but will ease with time - there is some flex in the quite narrow blade when open but still feels very secure. Exactly what you need when all you want is something to cut with instead of a mini toolbox !

I'm a Scout leader and recommend these knives for all of my Scouts. Easy to keep sharp, holds an edge well, comfortable handle for smaller hands, simple locking mechanism, and cheap enough to lose. What more could you want?

Holds a very keen edge with little grinding required. May bother some who use it to cut fruit as there is a strong 'iron-y' smell when cutting acidic fruits but otherwise perfect.

it's a great knife, light weight and a great blade. It comes quite sharp and the blade hasn't dulled much with general use so far.

Ideal to have in your: fishing box, camping supplies, gardening

I purchased this knife, as i work at a yard full of horses and donkeys, so it saves searching for some form of instrument to open a bale. Arrived in good time, the blade was very sharp!!!

This is a brilliant affordable penknife, I didn't want a knife that did lots of things just a penknife to cut. It is very sharp and I love the safety catch.
