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.

Coming from French forests, this blonde wood with few veins is ideal for applying color. The handle is varnished for protection against moisture and dirt.

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 received this knife at the earliest time it stated for shipping, and engraved the handle with my name and the latin quote "Age Quod Agis" on the side of the blade. Not only are both engravings excellent, but I thoroughly enjoy how versatile this fashionable red knife is in every day tasks and bushcrafting. I especially love the spine of the blade, which is incredible for creating quality sparks on firesteels. This knife came razor sharp out of the package, and I will be buying more Opinel products again. Thanks!
