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.

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've owned and used my No. 8 Opinel knife daily for almost a year now and have come to rely on it for all kind of tasks. I never leave home without. It has surpased my expectation for quality, versatility and ease of handling. It feels "natural" in my hand.

HAVE HADTHE #12 FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.USE IT IN HUNTING CAMP FOR FOOD PREP AND GENERAL CUTTING CHORES. HAS CARBON STEEL BLADE AND OWNER MUST BE PREPARED TO CARE FOR BLADE ACCORDINGLY. IF OWNER IS DILEGENT IN BLADE CARE YOU COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER, MORE RUGGED KNIFE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE KNIFE.
