What is your first memory of Opinel?

My first memory of Opinel goes back to when I was about 8 years old. My Grandfather gifted me an Opinel knife. It was a popular choice among my friends, and I found it incredibly useful while exploring the mountains. We would eat and carve wood with it, creating lasting memories.
