Opinel No4 Patina Knife Mod
Opinel pocket knives are one of the most popular and inexpensive pocket knives available. Knifemaker Ross Tyler modded the No4 carbon steel knife, which he describes as a “pimped up toxic post apocalyptic Steam punk’ish Opinel mod”.
The carbon steel no.4 Opinel blade was striped out then dark etched in ferric with a hint of copper. The Higonokami style one piece handle was beaten out of an old copper pipe, which was flattened then hammer hardened. It is secured with a kydex eyelet and a torx pivot and was then all etched, brass blackened and then stone washed for an aged effect.
