Opinel Effile

Oct 8, 1998
Anybody know where I can get one of these?

And what do you think?

This is a link to a picture of one.


Marion David Poff aka Eye, one can msg me at mdpoff@hotmail.com If I fail to check back with this thread and you want some info, email me.

Check out my review of the Kasper AFCK, thougths on the AFCK and interview of Bob Kasper. http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/Meadows/1770/kasperafck.html


I picked one up on a trip to Seattle, WA last year. I had seen them at Smokey Mt. Knifeworks...they no longer carry them. I don't know where you can get one though, they seem to be pretty hard to get.

I like the knife; it's slimmer than the standard Opinel model, but just as handy.

I just looked at Tool Shop and they have a Bubinga handled Opinel that I would like to get. The problem with ordering at the Tool Shop is the shipping...$22.00. Too much for such an inexpensive knife. Does anybody know of a retailer that carries a full line of Opinel knives state-side? Or at least carries the Bubinga handled models? Thanks.

I have one of these, it is opf-10. It has a polished stainless blade with a walnut colored handle.I had a friend that owns a knife store order mine for me. He gets them from one of these two distributors. Moteng or Matthews.These are designed to be folding fish filet knives and I think they make a couple of sizes.

Have some specific dealers who I can call?

Here's the picture of the one I would like to locate. It is the same size as the model #8 or #6 (both are available).

I have dealt with the Toolshop and it was a very pleasant experience. They replied to my e-mails promptly and the knife arrived when I expected it to. I think you will find that, for European manufactured items, their prices are better than you can get in the US.

I don't think you'll have any problems.

Take care,

Don't worry that the world might end tomorrow....in Australia it's tomorrow already.
