Opinel pocket-knife, Zurich, where?

Hi, I'm looking to buy one of those cheap wooden handled French pocket-knives. I don't want a fancy one, just the plain one. I tried google but almost all results either show me Swiss army knives or where to buy an Opinel online. I would perfer to buy it in store rather than online. I live in Zurich.

If you don't know what an Opinel looks like:

Sorry if this is in the wrong section but frankly besides food/drink there is no section for requesting things you want to buy in Switzerland but can't find. Mods, take note of this please.

Anyway, many thanks!

I bought an Opinel and a Laguiole in France, in Annecy. In general I've noticed that every souvenir shop in Zürich sells plain Opinel, obviously at double price you might pay for the same in France.
Try the knives-shop in Poststrasse (in front of the Gucci shop if I'm not wrong) a crossroad of Banhofstrasse.
The price should be around 20-25 chf for an Opinel with a blade of 10cm.
