Well I pulled the trigger on the opinel No 8 stainless steel knife. My first impression was what a piece of crap. But this is not a modern knife it is old school, tried and tested. It's a two hand open with a twisting manual locking ring. Beechwood handle and it comes in at 2.4 oz. So light you almost don't now it's in your pocket. If you are into modern knives this is not for you. This knife is only 15.00 bucks and well worth it.
The Opinel and a leatherman is a killer combo.
