Blade:  Björkmans Twist(DS93X) patern Damascus manufactured for Opinel by Damasteel of Sweeden
The steel is laminated using powder technology. This crystalline-scale sintering method preserves the fine-grained texture and makes the alloy highly resistant to corrosion. The blade patern is Björkmans whose thickly defined traits provide contrast and give the blade its unique character and finesse. This Opinel master piece is limited to 800 units worldwide and is destined to be one of the most collectible Opinel knife ever produced.

Handle:  Ebony

Ebony is the world darkest wood and one of the few that will not float.

Yatagan Style:The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.

This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings. 
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

Opinel Safety Ring in action

This Damascus blade is made from an anti-corrosive alloy requires no special maintenance. However we strongly advise to wipe the blade clean after each use. Like all wood the Ebony handle should not be immersed in water for long period of time and wipe dry after each use.
