    BLADE: Japanese Santoku Hōchō by Yamawaku - V2 blue steel core & burnt chestnut handle
    I've had a number of these since late 2012. Never had any problems with them or the Japanese eBay supplier. It's just like a big razor blade so does definitely need special handling and care. Not the blade for cutting boney meat or frozen food. It has been perfect for high speed fruit and vegetable processing. The sheer performance from the thin blade geometry and fine edge make it so much fun to use. It's a hoot every time.

    HF's Pinstriped Opinel 011018
    [​IMG]

    Many years ago and well before yours truly had become a teenager, I was enamoured with firearms. Gees, I could recite projectile weights, load in grains, muzzle velocities, distance drops of my favourite cartridges and shoot pretty well too. Gun design and gunsmithing looked very interesting and so set my mind to modifying the stock of my Gecado air rifle. That meant making a tool to make it happen so whilst in my Dad’s workshop, I stole a welding rod (manual metal arc stick), beat the flux off it and wire brushed it at one arbor end of a stone grinder. Next formed it with heat from an oxyacetylene kit to get a desired handle bend and with hammer flatten what would become the cutting end. The cutting head got finally formed with some fine files and heat treated via oxyacetylene and oil. I tried firstly with water but over heated the rod material and cracked it via thermal shock.

    If you’ve come this far, so what is the significance of this recount. Well, I still have that tool and it is what was used to put the pinstripe pattern on the Opinel shown.

    On a personal note, my Father was incredibly gifted at making steel do what he wanted. He happened to be working on a project and in a sincere effort to be like him I took on my big checkering tool project at the same time. What a laugh in retrospect and yeah those were wonderful times.

    HF's EDC Opinel #8 One-Hand 161019
    There are many things I like about the French Opinel folding knife, viz.;
    Reasonable cost and ready availability; Variety of model sizes; Thin blade with great slicing performance; Convex thin blade profile for easy sharpening; Carbon and stainless steel blades etcetera etcetera. But there’s one significant disadvantage that reduces the amount of use mine get. That is their inability to be practically opened with one hand.
    So per the pics and description, here’s my current solution …

    [​IMG]
    In order for the KWIK thumb stud to sit properly I had to remove a modicum of handle wood. That is so the grub screw could at least completely bite the blade, the blade could land fully in the handle and when open the recasso (not the stud) acted properly as the stop. That locus point necessitated the simplest of handle mod pictured.

    btw, the KWIK thumb stud also acts a neat thumb ramp when the blade is deployed.
    Also, operating the Opinel swivel lock with thumb and forefinger is not a problem with one hand.
