A blade of recognised quality

The olive Effilé 12 features a 12cm stainless steel mirror finish blade, a Virobloc safety ferrule stamped with the new logo and an olive wood handle. Its design is sleek and elegant. Although it's considered a pocket knife because it closes, it's also very handy in the kitchen for filleting fish, for example. In fact, its fine, flexible and sharp blade means you can cut with precision.
Made in France

Technical specifications

Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin.
The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. 
The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent ...).

12 cm

The mythical tree of the Mediterranean ! This hard wood has a yellow to orange appearance and has a dense and often tortuous veining. Soft to the touch it has a nice polish.

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from 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).
