I won't know for certain until I get the DVD, or see it again, but, the three times I've seen HF already, I'm pretty sure of it.

Image of My Knife Here

It is an Opinel brand knife, from France.
Mine was given to me by an old guy who lives next door to me here in Melbourne. He worked through europe in his youth.

If it is the same, I'll sell it as "Screen Used Prop" on eBay and raise money for St Vinnies or a big piss up for all the spaced outers.

Oh yeah, for those in Australia: My sister-in-law saw Jaffa Cakes in Aldi the other day. Aldi brand ones, not the real ones.

Update:
Turns out Opinel is a common brand in Europe - but less seen elsewhere.

**Feel less Special**

Opinel is a very common knife brand in Europe, it'd used by sailors a lot.

They aren't common in Australia.
Damn Wiki, I thought I'd looked in there, must have typo-d.

Heh, no, no drunken violence takes place upon any person about my person.
Inanimate objects have suffered, though.
I once crushed a broken CD cover which displeased me.

They have Aldi in Australia?!? Oh, Jesus, I'm SO sorry.

Was planning on sending Gen some of their own-brand Jaffa Cakes - bloody glad I didn't now, as it would have made me look like a cheap bastard! LOL! laugh.gif

We have an Aldi store here, is it a general cheap-brand store like the one here?

I like Lidl for cheapness and strange Dutch products. I guess that is why it is so cheap.

I used to buy bacon at Lidl. Nothing else, just bacon. My friend Benet bought fruit juice there, the tropical stuff.

I'm going to start a thread about fruit juice.

Mounds of bacon. Strange for a veggie but you could put it other uses. Tempting cats is one.

Do it! I like buying something called "Orangensaft" in Lidl. It's tasty.

I bet you can't get a big sailor's knife in Lidl. They are missing a trick.

That was in the days before the dark vegetarian times. I used to stir-fry a Sainsbury's turkey breast because they were cheap. I also used to watch Twin Peaks with cherry pie and cream.

That's the bitch. They call everything 'saft' in Europe. I haven't spoken to Benet in a while. He lives in the country.

Ahh - i am not veggie but meat is seeming less and less appealing now. I suspect it's origins. Spinach is less creepy, isn't it?

Pie and Peak! A novel viewing idea. I maybe will try it myself. Hmmm.

Saft i assume means 'juice' or 'drink' in a hibblybibbly tongue or other. My term there.

You should have a chat with your country friend. People in the country usually have an opinion about fences. Maybe that could be an opener for you.
