Technical specifications

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 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).

So you need a pocket knife that does not weigh much and takes up little space. Well then the no 6 is for you. High quality, sharp, cheap, safe and harmless, this is a fantasic little knife. Recommended for the tiny handed. Can be used as a backup in a car (unaffected by heat in a car a sunny day, unlike plastic). Easy to sharpen and whickedly sharp!

I love my several Opinel knives. Since I was a kid traveling in France, my mother’s native land, I’ve had one. I recently ordered a number 6 with olive wood handle and I was very surprised, and DELIGHTED, to see that it has a carbon steel blade! I do like the Sandvik steel Opinel uses in their stainless blades, but NOTHING matches the sharpness (if you know what your doing) and durability (if you don’t abuse it) of a good carbon steel blade! I’ve never seen this combination for sale ANYWHERE, including here in the Euro and the USA sites! It’s a Unicorn! I treasure it. I wish Opinel offered the carbon blade on any knife handle. CARBON RULES!
