This is a very good looking little knife for light pocket use. The bubinga wood is delightful, and the high-polish slim blade matches it well. Just one problem - the blade, in the locked closed position, still opens about a centimetre, exposing the very sharp blade point, which is potentially dangerous. I asked knivesandtools.co if they could swap it for another, but they said all their others had the same issue. This suggests to me that it is a manufacturing issue, so I wrote to Opinel, who sent me a replacement (earlier model I think) safety ring. Unfortunately, it was even worse. This is a pity, because in all other respects this is one classy little knife.
