because of the patina topic
http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=244749.msg4715027#msg4715027

For those to see a well patinated blade

Opinel No. 9 and Old Bear Large (210 mm)

Opinel Carbon with a natural patina through veggie cutting and cold cooked meats, just a clean and a dab of whatever oil is around (normally just a little olive and it its stashed away where ever. Have not picked up rust)

Old Bear is Aisi 420 stainless so no real care needed but I still clean and dab with oil.

Both handles are routinely maintained with my mix of bees wax and mineral oil treatment. The Old Bear responds better than the Opinel and seems to obtain a more ''waterproof"' quality.

The Opinel needs some mechanical work, I need to pop the lock ring off and tighten it up as it is free traveling and there is no secure lockup.
The Old Bear is solid  :biggrin:


I want a carbon Old Bear  :thumleft:

My carbon Opinel looks pretty much the same as yours.

Sitivien

Yes I am no D2 fan but this one came in at such a cheap price, a budged knife that gets great reviews and I am all in for sturdy working knives
One that you like but will accept if you happen to loose it which is unfortunately the way it is with our line of work
Sometimes under pressure and you use it, put it down and it can slip into a grain pit or drag or you get distracted and never find it again
This is a budget knife that feels really solid, well made and expensive
Think the blade design is sheepfoot?

Tom I know you don't care much for D2 but I find it a great steel and one of my hardest working knives is the Ontario Rat 1. Solid knife and its little brother the Rat 2 is of the same pedigree. Very well priced as well.
You may even be able to find one in AUS8 in the US.
Just in case you ever need one  :thumleft:

Who knows, and what is a mind if you canít change it?
It is already growing on me.
What I like about this model is that I can actually flick it open with the wrist.
