As a gardener just branching out into propagation, I know I need a small blade to take accurate cuttings and prepare them for planting. I’ve always believed the French to be pretty good at knives and I liked the shape and size if this knife. The design feature, which sold it for me (as well as price) was the moveable collar that secures the open blade in position for use. When not in use, the blade recesses into the handle. It’s easy to open and close with confidence that I’m not at risk of an accidental cut. On the whole, it’s a nice size for a woman’s hand and is now integral to my “batterie du jardin”.

Best little pocket knife there is for a gardener - and cheap enough to be able to have more than one! Takes a really good edge on my oil-stone, but I reckon you could get good results from an ordinary kitchen knife sharpener.

I have been using Opinal knives for over 50 years, the simplicity of their design eliminates springs etc and the ability to lock the blade is a great advantage, Personally i prefer the Carbon steel blades to the stainless steel as i find that a much sharper edge can easily be produced . I use my knife daily for a whole array of reasons, work, Home or leisure times it always comes in handy. I have never had a blade break and only have to renew if i lose it, now at the price they are i buy two ,terrific value for money and i whole heartedly recommend them to anyone that require a good useful pocket knife.
