Today I’ll try my new Opinel n° 8 Outdoor, here whit my SAK Ranger for comparison
Handling the knife
Let’s start the trials. First, a tent peg
Now, a guy runner
At this point I experienced some issues, in fact: the Rotoblock doesn’t work so well, because it’s angle of rotation is just few degrees
And the clip point of the knife is too obtuse to penetrate easily the wood. So, the knife tend to close if pushed up and down few times…
…and finally this is the result
Final trial, a trigger
This knife disappointed me a bit. It’s really comfortable in hand due to the rounded handle, but the Rotoblock doesn’t work when stressed, it tend to open, and the clip point is too belly to use it as a reamer.
More, the knife isn’t sharpen as I like out of the box, this can be fixed easily of course but is something to note. I tried the whistle too, nothing special, is easy to use but is fairly weak, if you ask me.
