Opinel trademarks and logos

I have an openel knife that was handed down to me from my father. It is a number 8 standard opinel knife, but after reading the wiki article I noticed something strange. the Opinel logo on my knife is identical to the one in the picture, except the hand has all four fingers extended instead of having the ringfinger and pinky folded down. Does any one knew about this modified logo and why my knife might have it? Noxidxela 22:58, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Sizes

Is there a correspondence between the size numbers and the length of the blade in centimeters? I understand that the No.12 has a 12cm blade, but the other sizes seem to be rounded up by 0.5-1cm. It would be interesting to list them in a table. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 09:38, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

1993 - 50th anniversary

This does not make sense since the knives are stated as having been made since 1890.

Genericity

   in the French language, the term "Opinel" has become a genericized trademark

I have never heard anyone use the term Opinel to refer to anything but an Opinel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.159.168.175 (talk) 19:51, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
