Just received the set of four Opinel spreaders and paring knife and love them! Their bright colours are what attracted me. They add a nice sprinkle of colour to my otherwise monochromatic knife drawer. I was a bit hesitant to venture to a brand that I was unfamiliar with (I like Japanese knives, Misono UX10 in particular, which I also bought from Paul), but knowing that Paul only stocks the GOOD STUFF let me know that I could trust that I'd always get a quality product, regardless if I was familiar with the brand or not. I wish all companies could instill this kind of confidence in the buyer. Always a pleasure.
