Opinel Knives

This is the only product/ object which features on this web site but which was not made by me. I can sell you any Opinel product from the Opinel Catalogues, but the product which i so highly recommend is a small pocketknife named "No 7 Round Tipped Safety Knife" in the catalogue. This is by far my favorite pocket knife that i have ever owned. It has a rounded tip which makes it perfect for spreading spreads and importantly makes it look non-menacing, yet it is also extremely sharp and holds an edge very well. It is the ultimate knife for traveling, picnics... but the steel is of such high quality that it can easily be used for carving/whittling and it is the knife that i used to make these Hand Carved Crochet Hooks. This knife like most opinel knifes features a lock ring which can lock the knife open or closed. I also love the eco-friendly ness of it, it is made of timber and steel. Steel is used where it is necessary, for the lock ring and blade and timber a very low embodied energy, totally naturally recyclable material for the handle. The timber handle also has a great feel in the hand.

The following is a photo of the "No 7 Round Tipped Safety Knife" in its packaging.
