    @Tony Sal and @jimboinwv: always glad to be of service! Cheer up guys. The 'Old Bear' isn't even close to expensive as things go around here!

    Yeah the 'Old Bear' is like the Opinel 'done right'. But then again my Opinel is sweet as well with its ebony handle and mirror finish.

    For whatever reason I've never been even slightly interested in Opinels.....but those Old Bears are intriguing. I may have to get the pruner version.

    I just got the larger one, bigger than the #6 Opi. No longer a little one....

    The No 7 is the next size up for Opinel. I have the No 6 in my lunch bag when I worked in an office. I am working from home through December. A Kickstarter campaign which fell short in funding would have made detachable pocket clips for the No 7, 8 and 9.

    Glad to be of service! Not so sure you need to oil that handle. I think unlike the beechwood handles on Opinels, these come with a finish already. I've not treated either of mine yet and they don't show any wear issues... but then I don't carry them daily; and when I do I treat them to a belt sheath (the large one) or a pocket slip (the medium one)!

    Use long and in good health!

    As a fan of Opinels (which I keep exclusively in a picnic daypack), that's a great looking variation on the design. I'd buy one but at this stage in life, I need less stuff, not more. Besides, the Opinels work fine. One even has an olive wood handle.

    Fair enough! I'm not anti-Opinel; have 3 myself. Just find for me I like the Old Bear version better...

    I was at a ceremony today for a dear elder that passed, Ashes to be thrown into a river. Priest opened the container and the plastic bag was sealed with a cable tie. Before he could even ask "anyone have a knife?' My MiniGrip was out.
