I had a #8 which served me well, but was really too big. The #6 is perfect - it locks, but is the right size. I have tried folding knives with stainless steel blades - they just don't get very sharp. This one does. When I need a beefier blade I use my carbon steel Mora, kept on the bench.
When I'm doing woodworking I probably use the Opinel #6 twenty times a day.
I was also very pleased with how quickly Paul's Finest filled the order.
Great knife. It has a then blade. I use it for whittling. I will definitely make future purchases with PaulsFinest as the experience was pleasure.
