Opinel No. 08 Pocket Knife - 3.25"
Weighing in at a scant 1.6 oz, it's a perfect EDC for those of us whose occupations don't involve kicking in doors (for those, it's a great backup!).
The full convex grind, stainless steel and thin blade profile make for the most amazing food prep knife you'll ever lay your hands on (or wood carving for that matter), and the classic single piece beechwood handle has a sculpted profile with generous palm swell that keeps your hands comfortable for hours as you toil away at the work at hand.
The locking mechanism is simplistic genius! The stainless steel collar and lock ring rotate at the pivot to both lock the blade closed, as well as open. It is definitely one of the safest knives I have ever handled, and have no problem handing it off to others to use while in the field without having to worry about the blade closing on their fingers should they ever be so inclined to use it the wrong way.
