Blade length

9 cm - 3.54 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)

I recently took my No.9 out on a hiking/camping trip with a group of boy scouts and was overwhelmed at its splendid performance! The only knife you will ever need!

I believe the NO9 Opinel is the best size for those that need a pocket knife but also need a work knife. The Opinel NO9 is small enough to fit in my pocket but big enough to hold onto with a pair of work gloves on. As a farmer, I use it to open feed sacks, clean hooves on goats, break up mineral blocks, de-ice livestock tanks, process small animals like chickens and rabbits, cut bail twine, ect. I'd be lost without my Opinel. If you want a easy to sharpen, reliable locking system and a long lasting blade, look no further than a Opinel NO9.

I purchased my Opinel #9 at the ship's chandlery at the Monaco harbor in 1973- for $3.00. And for the last 40 years it has been a reliable partner on nearly 60 wilderness canoe trips, serving many uses from kitchen detail to cutting rope to camp chores. What a treat to see it age with a beautiful patina and become a tool with which I will never part . The wooden handle is either olive or apple and looks beautiful. I improved it by adding a finger notch to aid opening and a metal bale at the butt end to which I affix a braided rope knob which aids removal from my pocket. Using this knife is a real treat! Buy one and age with it gracefully..........and go with the carbon blade for sharpness and character. You will not be disappointed!

Usable Heirloom

It's rare these days to find items that are both functional, and can be passed down over generations. The #9 is just that. I like the slightly larger size as it looks just that much more impressive, without being impractical.
