You are looking at an Opinel No9 A classic French folding knife This. One has a 35 inch(9cm) blade from high carbon steel. And a sharpness that is simply unmatched in its class Lightweight at 16oz(45gr) affordable. And beautiful These are knives. That demand some love care. And attention But you give them. That the result is a very rugged. And effective knife. That will truly grow on. And last for decades The wooden handle with a fishtail at the end is curved to give. You a sure grip and can be made from beech oak walnut olive rosewood. And a plethora of other materials The stainless steel locking ring at the top twists to secure the blade in. Both open and closed position The blade itself has the form of a so-called Yatagan Single-edged with a forward curve. And sharp point.
The nail nick in the side of the steel makes. It easy to open Its edge is okay out of the box but amazing when. You put a little work into. It The wood benefits greatly from a thin layer of wax. Once in a while to make. More moisture proof When. You don’t the handle swells. And the knife becomes difficult to open In. That case a firm tap on its fishtail ensures the blade is still accessible This. One from high carbon rusts. When kept wet so I try to keep. When possible but I definitely don’t mother.
It’s been with while kayaking on salt water camping in the Norwegian rain It’s been submerged in French rivers. And clashed with Polish rocks Opinel also makes stainless steel versions that are lower in maintenance but also a tad less sharp. More difficult to sharpen. It just has less character The Opinel is timeless. And a great piece of equipment. You are willing to put.
And like I said it's a blue died would handle. It is uh it's not a slip joint. It does have this locking mechanism oh. You could just turn. That okay nice for what I could tell my camera is picking. And locks it in place. Iknow the little bit of videos. Ihave seen on it basically. Ihaven't seen anybody really turning. That knob so it's almost like they're using it like a slip joint ah. This the end I still left thee the little tag on there still show. You it's brand-new this lanyard is leather it's made in France. And it's a ridiculously light 16 ounces. Me close and take it around at first. And then I'll take you open. You ever hear the saying how does. You never get a second chance to make a first impression well yesterday. Igot home I was a little psyched to get. It my way I paid $17 well right. This goes for cheaper a lot of places but. Ikept looking around. Ikept seeing I mean you'd on the website. It came up as some 18 dollars. This for 17 including ships a lot of places.
It for 12 after you factor in shipping it back up to 17 anyway so back to just getting it so my steamed about the first impression. You don't have a second chance to make a first person as soon as. Itried to stick my hand. You know my finger in there. And a pull I could not pull. This out I mean really. It was like I actually hurt myself. Because right now my nails are very short. Ia nice you know I was trying to pull. Igo yeah I was like wow the heck is up with. This doesn't this thing open up. Now over the couple hours yeah. You know it opens up. Me uh what's that my trusty wipe but. It took a little that usual. What hopin Elgar up. You know I'm gonna stick top enough is. That usual what happened. Idon't know like I said I'm a novice. It comes to open I don't know but let's let's see.
Now let's do a quick Wow. Iforgot my paper for my paper test anyway you'll just have to take. It for granted for me. Ididn't bring my paper. Idon't want to start. This over again uh it does cut very well okay. You know I'm not gonna say it's a plus color but it's sharp. You know it had that's a positive it's a very sharp blade. Some things I want to go over. What I like what I don't like in. Some comparisons to other knives. Idon't know when people are saying their doing modifications to. This knife it exactly they're modifying I'm assuming their modifying the handles. Idon't know I really can't say but as is well. Some positives. You will definitely not feel. This in your pocket wha your pop your wallet yeah in your pocket. Imean like I said 16 ounces that's ridiculously light but. II don't know the trouble opening it causes being right off the bat to have a bed like. Isaid bad first impression.
You wanna I want to light. This knife I already was already having plans I'm gonna buy. These colors and I'm gonna probably have a bunch of them. Iget a lemon it didn't open up good. You know it still seems a little stiff to open. You know is that a good thing is. That a bad thing maybe it's a good thing because. Once it's open you can it's probably not gonna close. Even without the lock on is. It a bad thing you know I'll leave. That up to you know like it's better. It was I'll say that cuz. Ihad taken this out of the package. And showed I was pulling it out like. Iprobably would have dreamed. All over and said forget about. This thing's a piece of junk but. It after a day of playing around with. It cut with you know. It does have redeeming value but let's take the price let's go from 12 to 20 dollars. You know you can get. This from 12 to 20 dollars. This variant anyway.
What else can you get for. That price right so let's feedback a little bit let's let's put. This in the middle of the. What else could you get for. That price you know let's tone on clone for now oh let's go like book. You might say well come on Joe. You expect for 17 dollars. Iexpect look at this is a Mora. Imean yeah alright it's its a fixed play. You know it's tough too. This is like $12 me the quality of. And you're getting a quality. These leaps and bounds better. Than the oppan oh you know. You want to stick to the. You want to stick to the de fix blade. How about a cold steel fin. This is less this is probably. Idon't remember what I paid for this. This is uh in that price range I'm pretty sure. This is probably leaps. And bounds better now does. This same Steel's is. Idon't know but it's a fixed plate so. You might sorry Joe come on man it's a fixed blade. You know you can't compare the two it's different alright so let's let's take the fin bear out.
It in the beginning it's a fin bear alright so uh. How about uh first short shuffle that's about sixteen seventeen dollars it's not the same size blade but the quality is there. You know it feels like a lot. More quality now I'm not running I'm not running the OP no down. You know it did start off on. Me bad but it has making a comeback. Iwas starting to like. It a little bit today but I'm just showing you. Some comparisons you know. What else can be bought out there. What about God knows. Many Gerbers that are out there. Now granted this guard was a Gerber aspect it's not. Even doesn't even exist. You know it's not mean anymore but still. Many Gerbers are out there. That are less than $20 it'll do the trick little folders it'll do the trick for this.
Icould probably you look them up. You could probably have a list. You go on YouTube you could but there's a ton right so. You want to go the route of clones. How about. This beast the gonzo 720. You can get now for like. One of my one of the guys on YouTube was listening this as twelve dot $12. Or twelve or fifteen dollars. They got bought it was like close to 20 but. You could have this instead of. You want to stick to the seam the same route. How about this is a Navy. Something around but it's a little too basically a little temperance knock off. This was 17 or 19 dollars. This is $17 you can have. This instead of this so here's the question. You know also well before. Even get to the question the knife itself the positives. Isaid it's like I said it's sharp but it's not. You can't open one hand right I'm sure to. You the grip there's no jimping eye. You could conceivably. Imean yeah I like the color of the wood handles.
Ilike the wood handles but. It could slip out of your hands. Imean yeah the lanyard helps the blade. Whether good or bad is paper thin. You know you might say well that's the way. You know that's the way up. And those are that's the way. Ijust feel like I should revisit. This knife maybe a video on. This knife in a couple of months. Ijust feel like something like the blade is going to easily snap on. Some hard duty I don't know. Ican't really say I'll be honest with. This I'm not gonna say. You don't get and I'm not gonna say get. It but I'll say this I'm probably not gonna get. It at first I don't love. All those other things. Ishowed that God knows uncounted. More things you can get between 10. And 20 dollars I think I'd rather go. That route than buy. One of these somebody gave.
One of these yeah would. It would you know it's got its value like. Isaid it's very sharp. And like an idiot I forgot to bring my paper to show. It is sharp so take my word for it like. Isaid very light but as. You know any of my videos I've said. Many times something so. She does shape or a look. Whatever I'll buy multiples of. Ican tell you right. Now I'm not gonna buy multiples of. This is nice to have but as a. One time only thank. Even the leather. We might say quick come on. You get a nose job but. Though the leather just feels a little bit no a little bit cheap could have been done a little bit better for them up for 17 dollars.
Now hopefully you op know fans don't start. You know I'm getting mad at. Me about this I'm just being honest my opinion. This knife has a big following I know there's a lot of incarnations of. This knife, so I could be just maybe could be just. Iper se just like this knife. And I'm not gonna wouldn't tell. You to definitely run out. What other ones like princess my cold for video. Idid know week or so ago. You know jumping up. And down how great. And recommending you definitely have the idea question. Ido not feel one is a must-bye to have to add. It to your collection nice but not great so there. You have it the optimal trekking knife the number 8 the blue handles. One last look at it before. We close out the one that's a fingerprint magnet thanks a lot for watching take care. You enjoyed the video you.
You right here on the knife. That it's a number 8. And it says made in France not sure. If the lights picking. That up it looks like. It is this is the ein ox stainless steel blade there's the famous OpenAL open three finger open two fingers closed hand with the crown. And there's some history behind. That and again let's come back. And I receive this from my birthday so my initials are engraved in. It and it's just a really nice knife. That I'm going to cherish. And that I'm going to start carrying and it's also a very practical knife as. You can see here I'll just do a little quick carving here a great knife to have around the campsite it's super sharp. You know for carving and kindling wood.
You could also do you could do. Some light batana with. It and see some of. That you were making a kindling wood very nice to work with just a really nice blade nice shape feels good in hand. And guys three and a quarter inch blade seven. And a half inch total length opened closed. This is what it looks like it's the knife closed again 16 ounces. You can get the monogrammed. And on the steel is also on the wood the blade is a stainless steel let's open. It back up and show. You the blade is a stainless steel 12 C 27s Sandpit stainless steel. It will not rust it's a considered. Some of the best stainless steel out there that's Sandpit 12 C 27 okay. This knife if you noticed. If you could see it has what's called a vibe Rolo con. It so once I open. This knife I'll shut. It here once I open. It there's a little sliding piece here called the vibra lock.
You can see I'll slide. It there it goes and. Now you can see that. It will not close on. You and fold onto your hand there. You can see and also to close. It again you slide the vibra lock over. You can close the blade. And then also slide the vibra lock so. You cannot open it. Either and will keep. It from opening as well so that's your safety mechanism on. This knife again the craftsmanship is really nice on. This knife second-to-none the woods really nice the lanyards nice the whole shape of the knife just the way. It feels the lightweight the versatility of. It and this gives. You no excuse not to have a knife in your pocket at. One point six ounces guys I'm going to put the open L USA site in the description box.
You could go over some of the frequently asked questions on. This knife but again guys.

Some really nice fine little curls with. That really tiny you want to is a very sharp blade. And it's a it's a full flat grind so. You can get down in their like. You need to as well let's make just a. More little pieces little bitty feathers. Iwould row get back. And cut your snoot, so I'm going to fold. This back up instead of striking it with a Ferry rod with the blade out.
And with this little curved portion here that's. What I found the best place to strike a Ferry rod but. It strikes a Ferry rod very well as. You can see so like. Isaid that's the open L number eight. And I'll leave all the specs in the description box below. You want to check this out also leave a link to. It on Amazon and eBay. It goes for 1516 bucks.
