I have had my share of opinels. Good knives and not all that expensive.

I like the sheath.

 I got a good deal on that set, they're $50 at L.L. Bean. An old fella I know has really bad arthritis in his hands and couldn't use the collar on it and it was a gift to him so he sold it to me for 25.00

Sweeet!!! That's a hell of a price. My cousing Darren has quite the collection Of opinels. I on the other hand am sad to say I no longer own any. Might have to change that sometime.

You can get opinels in either stainless or carbon steel. I like the carbon steel ones but the do take a touch more care than the stainless but that's nothing new.

 I really like the one I have and the workmanship is really good in my opinion especially for the price which is not that much.
