Austin-based husband and wife team Son of a Sailor have customized the classic French Opinel stainless steel pocket knife with the signature Son of a Sailor aesthetic. Signal flags have inspired the hand-painted color blocked wooden handle. This tiny beechwood model with a carbon blade is just 2 1/4" long when folded! These knives are made with heavy-duty paint and varnish. This is a tool intended for rugged use, and a rough patina will be earned on the entire finish of the knife, over time.
