Opinel Number 12 folder
I use it for everything, from cutting outdoors to cutting meat at a restaurant, where it usually gets an admiring reaction. The simple and secure lock mechanism is excellent. The steel and the temper are just exactly right; it stays sharp for a good long time, and is easy and quick to sharpen when it needs it. It's a utility knife raised to the highest standard, and it's ridiculously inexpensive. The definition of a pocket knife. As you can see, I'm a fan of these knives; I own about six or eight of them. I started carrying Opinel knives about forty years ago when I was working as a carpenter. I changed from a Swiss Army Knife. I could cut drywall with it (ouch), hit it with a steel the next morning, and it was ready to go again. I prefer the carbon steel to the stainless, but I prefer carbon steel period. Well cared for, it's a lot prettier.You do need to keep the lock clean and lightly lubricated. I don't particularly like the handle shape, but I usually reshape it.

Big folder a delight to use.
I wish I'd gotten one of these a long time ago. This extra large folder works wonderfully on bread, melons, larger cuts of meat, anything I would use a chefs knife on. I've put this knife in the picnic/camp box where it will get a lot of use. The big handle gives me plenty to hold, and the high carbon blade is sharp and easy to keep that way. The blade lock is foolproof, and because it folds up the edge is protected and your fingers are too. I don't know of any folder this large, this well made, and this inexpensive.

Built very well. You'll break the blade before the hinge will give. Be aware this knife is HUGE! I'm looking for a sheath that will fit and until then it rides in my back pocket beside my wallet in my Wranglers. I can cut re-enforced chem hoses loose at work with one try thanks to the length of the blade; no sawing! Kudos for the quick shipping time too!
