8.5 cm - 3.35 in

We use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge.

Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small, -dark dashes.

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives as of the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport)

This is my favorite Opinel. Have one for around the house, and one that stays in my backpack. It works well as a gardening knife, and it is outstanding as a pack knife, especially for food prep. I also prefer a spear point blade as they are most useful to me. The steel is excellent (I usually prefer carbon steel), holds a keen edge, and requires little maintenance. It is an excellent slicer, and is great for detailed whittling or cutting work. I never go afield without it.

It came a little dull. But it still gets five stars. The blade is thick and the steel makes it so easy to sharpen that it is actually fun rather than aggravating. This would make a nice EDC knife.

Very Good

It is a very good gardening knife but it looses its sharpness too easy. Also it looks perfect.

Great knife, but wish came in carbon blade

I love this knife as my daily carry pocket knife. Great for using during lunch, picnics, daily meal prep, you name it. I also love the design that is close to the capuchin style of knives. Very simple, sturdy, and elegant, plus not outrageously priced to other capuchin knives by comparison. My only wish is that this would come in a carbon blade option and the possibility of going up to a No.10 model as well. If that was the case, I would be handing these out to friends, family, and business clients like candy during the holidays and birthdays. I know the possibility of more corrosion with the carbon blade, but that would be significantly outweighed by the increased sharpness. Just something to think about???????

One great knife

The Garden knife fits perfectly in my hand. It was reasonably sharp when I received it, but a few passes on the sharpening stone put a nice edge that cuts cleanly. The knife is very light in hand and has great balance. It locks up good and tight. I like that it's a simple design and the locking mechanism is ingenious. I trade off between this and the standard No. 8 as my everyday carry.
