OP13: N013 Giant Folding Knife, Stainless Steel
At almost 2 feet when open, the Opinel N013 is a huge knife and is commonly used as a machete. Many people also use this knife to barbecue, you can easily cut and or flip meat on the grill and the handle does not transfer heat. Stabilized beechwood is ultra resistant and comfortably contoured to fit the hand. The blade is made from 12C27 Sandvik Stainless steel, which will not rust, however try to avoid leaving your Opinel knife in damp environments for too long and dry the blade after each use. This is a very large knife - please review its size before considering it. Includes a leather lanyard.
  • This knife features the Virobloc Safety ring. The Virobloc safety ring was invented and implemented in 1955. This simple yet effective locking system greatly improved the original knife.The ability to help prevent the blade from opening when closed was added to the Virobloc in 2000.

Cons: None
Huge and Sharp
Have no use for this item. The balance between the handle and blade is disproportionate. It would be a great outside tool. I was hoping to use it in the kitchen but it's unweildy to say the least. It is a direct replica of an opinel pocket knife, just super sized. It is beautifully crafted, the blade is incredible. At best, this can thrill any knife enthusiast and a great conversation piece. A Crocodile Dundee Knife for sure.

Big, BIG Folder!!
I picked up this Opinel #13 mainly for the novelty. I like Opinel knives, and have also been intrigued by the concept of a folding bowie knife. The Opinel 13 fits the category of folding bowie very well - it's a large knife with a clip-style blade, and it folds. It is not, however, a "heavy-duty" or "hard use" knife, in my opinion. The lock, while quite secure, is not made for heavy prying or chopping or batonning. The blade is tapered towards the tip, so it isn't a good choice to use for prying. If, however, you want a large blade which can be used for slicing things such as fruit or meat or vegetables, then this knife would be a good choice. The thin blade cuts very well, and the full flat grind is perfect for kitchen type duties. It would be a great knife for the camp cook. One thing which I do not like about the knife is the size (thickness) of the handle. The handle up at the joint is very thick and perfectly round. It has to be round to allow the ring lock to function, but it isn't ergonomic by any means. This knife begs for modification or personalization, however There is plenty of "meat" in the handle for some to be removed to make the handle more user friendly. I ground the handle of my knife down until it had more of an oval shape rather than being perfectly round. I like this knife, and plan to put it to good use on my next camping trip. The knife doesn't come with a sheath, but it can be slipped into the utility pocket of some work pants, or stowed in a pack. I made a horizontal sheath for mine. For its size it is very light weight as well.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Type, Sheath
I plan on using this fold out knife for camping. Slicing food products only. I like the blade length and the handle diameter. Easy to hold on to. I find the locking method a little on the crude side but is functional. The thing I wish it had was a good leather sheath. Overall I rate this knife a 4 Good
