And at the end, an incredibly stylish Opinel No 8 Ellipse. Photo not able to show all the charm of this knife (or am I a bad photographer :roll: ).

I only own 1 Opinel and i hate it. There is nothing i like about this set of knives.
That may surprise some people, but that is the way it is.
What's more is that this is the only style of knife that does nothing for me.

Tony,

I have to say I'm in agreement. I have had a few over the years - just don't like the shape of the blade with no drop and such a massive belly swoop leading to the point. I really like slim knives, so the big round frame doesn't work for me --- BUT --- I fully appreciate the super thin blade that is a bonafide slicer & the pure simplicity of the design and the unique rotating lock. I know "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies as they sell boatloads of them, but I just wish they would modernize it by offering some more conventional blade designs.
pffffft that's not a knife ......... now THAT'S a knife !! Crocodile Dundee

I too am not a fan of the "fat" blades but this one isn't too bad.
