Model Number 7. Lime Patina. Some funky file work and blade mod.
Schmucktelli Co Kiko paracord bead.
First time working on a tiny Number 4 Opinel. I made the tip blunt to be used a an emergency little flat head driver. I will probably patina the copper chain.
A number 10, 9, and 8 arrived. Love the walnut for hand carving.
Using my Flexcut mini pelican for some woodcarving on the handles.
If you are getting serious about Opinel modding, then a pair of Snap Ring Pliers for under $10 is a great investment.
The pair I have came with an assortment of tips, however, I only use the bent tip. Sure, you can easily pry the Virobloc collar off, but why risk scratching the metal or somehow prying it in a way that damages its integrity.
