Opinel Modifications




What do you think about this video?

C Challinor: Now why in gods name would you want to 'pimp' your Opinel? Its a clasic design, I get the lanyard hole.....but the rest WTF ? Not necessary

Slavik77Pyc: забавно

SuperGPAG: i agree with you that opinels are very special things but why not and something of your own to them. It's nice to put some individualism into your knives and make them unique, but even saying this i do not agree with major modifications or any blade mods. I find many people wanting to make the blades drop points but opinel sells them as drop point so @n1ck3o7 why change the blade?

n1ck3o7: @643jaybee thanks!!!

zombiegoatrabbit: im really intrigued by this suggestion, have you actually done this?

guywiseman: Hello Nick, great vid. I recommend fitting an extra brass ferrule (from copper piping) below the existing SS for extra strength during torque action. Great knots.

MrFlaujac: made in france!

Anderw Marcell: I have taken a No6 fitted a thumb stud and made the handle notched for the stud and a bit thinner. I learned in France to open up the slot near the hinge a bit. Also heavy oil finish to fight swelling and binding of the blade. These are excellent knives and have seen over a century of reliable service. Also look at the big hook bill garden knife, it can be flicked open with a bit of work and it is a tool not a weapon. All the best.

n1ck3o7: @CChallinor i can see why you wouldn't, but i have a few now, and i do still keep one clean one, however the other one i modified now fits my hand a lot better, especially for more delicate carving work, plus i prefer not to have the hooked up tip on the opinel. but anyway, its just personal preference!

n1ck3o7: @jemremyc i left the blade still attached to the handle, but folded out and i wrapped a load of card and duck tape around it to save my fingers! mine didn't ever build and gunk in the hinge, but if it did, its not hard to scrape away as its such a simple design! and they aren't all that expensive either so if it breaks then you can just buy new one

Jeremy Conrad: How did you to about painting and varnishing the handle? Did you leave the blade in, or did you remove it? I imagine you'd have some problems with gunk building up in the pivot if you had left the blade in...
