Description

This famous Opinel folding knife is to hand during all your adventures: hiking, camping, bivouacking, hunting and fishing. Extremely versatile, it is the ideal companion for your excursions into Nature.

The carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby ensuring that the cutting edge is maintained, little wear and easy regrinding.
The carbon is not very corrosion-resistant: we advise you to avoid damp environments and to wipe and oil the blade after use.

Cut out from a strip of steel, the blade is heat-treated to alter the internal structure of the steel, making it very hard. This raw blade then passes through a series of specific grinding wheels in the fully robotised grinding-polishing machines. They give it the unique domed Opinel profile which ensures unrivalled strength and cutting edge.

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring locks the blade in the open position (safety in use), and the blade can also be locked in the closed position (safety in transport).

Blade: Carbon Steel
Handle: Beech

Blade Length: 12 cm
Open Length: 28 cm

    We’ve known for ages that having an opinel knife in the kitchen drawer is a must, so were pleased to have replaced our very old one with our current one.

    Opinel knife

    Having trouble getting the knife in and out. It is very stiff and very hard to do especially when it is so sharp. Any recommendations? I have had one of these knives for years and not had this problem before, only reason I had to buy another was children keep taking mine!
