The LionSteel Big Opera is similar to the 'regular' Opera. This knife, however, as the name already suggests, is the perfect choice if you are looking for a bigger knife. Even though the difference in cm is not that substantial, the Big Opera is clearly bigger. Like the Opera the Big Opera is perfect for daily use. It is slim, light-weight, easy to open with one hand and made from top-quality materials. The handle is made from santos wood which makes the knife look very luxurious with its warm red/brown colour. The D2 steel blade is hard and retains its sharpness for a long time.
The Italian designers, of course, pay attention to the details. The ridges of the blade subtly move towards the spine of the blade. The opening for a lanyard is nicely added to the back instead of what you usually see: a hole in the knife.
The steel liners were milled out to save weight. And you can tell when you hold the knife!
