Very simple - "Filmam" the portuguese "Opinel"

Okay, i admit it's in no way an Opinel.
But it`s from the same category.

Been done like this forever, 1870 to be exact.

A coworker is half portuguese, so i ordered 2
to see what they are like.

33grams only. No sideplay, no-frills inox steel,
mediocre factory grind. But at 10$ i'm happy
with this new knife.

Noticeable: The linerlock has to be unlocked
in reverse positon to "normal" so as a righthander
u will use 2 hands.
I'm a Lefty, so :-)


anyway, just thought iŽd give u a show. :-)

I didn't know those existed. I think calling it a Portuguese Opinel is a good description. It really does look like an Opinel with a liner lock. Thanks for the pics and the info.

1st impressions.

Hi.

First impressions after carrying and fondling it.

The steel is simple. Nowhere near Opinel carbon
or Mora Sandvik. But it does cut rope, salami, bread
and so on.

It`s no the sturdiest knife, but like with a .22
i don't see any1 volunteering to be stabbed with it.

This thing is neat! a drop of oil on the lock
and things smoothened up a bit.

It only weighs an ounce!
Basically weightless. Which means it can be easily lost as well.

So i thought about a lil kydex sheath ... and then realized
that a tiny pocket clip would be great!

You could just clip one of those into each jacket
and never even feel u have it with you.

And when u need it - it will be there.



Unfortunately a google search did not turn up
any US resellers.

Ah, ok. Hamburg. Silly me. For some reason I tend to assume everyone on the English language internet is from my own country - except where I see symbols for the pound or the euro.

Well, maybe that's a good thing. I still have a lot of modding to do on my Opinels and Moras.

My bad bringing this back from the dead, but I stumbled across the thread while researching this brand. I ran across it while checking out the Memorial Day sale at a knife seller I use. If anyone is still interested in these, they can now be bought in the US from Knife Center.

I've not tried the things so I can't vouch for them, but I'm thinking of getting one just for grins because they're inexpensive.

Everyone have a great Memorial Day weekend and take a moment for solemn reflection, eh? cheers, erich
