Blade length

7 cm - 2.76 in

Carbon steel

Our carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby guaranteeing excellent cutting quality, good wear resistance and easy regrinding. Carbon can corrode easily. We advise you to avoid damp locations and to wipe and grease the blade after use.


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.

Safety ring

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)

Superb little knife! Fits perfectly in my blue-jeans watch pocket. The carbon blade is sharp from the factory, but can become super sharp after a little touch-up. Unbelievable quality for the price!

One of the best knives I've bought!

I just got this baby in the mail today and after a few tests I can say that this is probably one of the best pocket knives I've bought. I tested the blade on the package it came in, cut through the paper like butter! I sharpened a pencil for grins and it performed better than a razor blade! I know it will also hold it's edge very well as it's got enough "bend" to not warp or break and upon tapping it on the table the blade "sings" ever so slightly. I had my doubts about the sturdiness of the locking ring (I've never owned a knife with such a unique locking feature), but it is indeed quite tough and will hold the blade firmly in place both folded out and in. From the recommendations I've heard and reputation that Opinels have I decided to get my monogram laser burned in the handle, it came out quite nice. I know that this knife with some care on my part will probably last longer than I will.

By far the best knife iv ever purchased

Got this little knife just as a pocket knife but used it for so much more. One of the best knifes I've used. Great product, stayed sharp and was easy to sharpen. Can't beat Opinel

I got this little guy and I am amazed. This is the sharpest knife I've ever owned, kitchen or camping. It's light, legal to carry, and I definitely recommend! I intend to buy a couple of kitchen knives; if they are as good as these, and I feel positive they will be, I will be thrilled. Dull knives are a serious danger. The knife blade folds completely into it's handle, and the Virobloc lock keeps it folded. The point is covered, and I don't worry about it coming open in my handbag or backpack. When open, (which, by the way, is easily done and doesn't wreck my nails. Important for a woman!) it also locks soundly and I am not afraid it will close on my fingers. The handle is lovely, it has a good texture, I like the color, which will only get deeper and prettier with use and age. Excellent quality, excellent product!! I'm pleased!!
