Cretan Opinel

On our holiday to Paleochora, Crete we spent a day on the East Beach. The sun was pretty hot, so we spent a lot of time under a tamarisk tree. I built a little wall.
On the way back I found an Opinel knife
which has cleaned up quite well. Note the change in the branding: no France and the Main Coroné has moved. This would indicate that it is quite a few years old. (I could not discover when this change occurred).

[Thanks to Laurent in the comments: it was made between 1986 and 1990.]
