Someone let me sharpen their Opinel! They seemed to have similar fondness towards theirs, though they didn't trust the barrel lock. I thought that was odd, my only complaint is that it gets grit in it.
Same knife, same sharpness. This carbon steel seems to take a finer edge than just about any steel. I think their knife was actually bought in France. The newer logo looks nice, I think it's the product of CNC which might not have been around to make the die for the logo on the older knife.
