Technical specifications

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% gives excellent cutting edge.Blade hardness 57-58 HRC

The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.

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).

My friend Lawrence from Chambery bought me an engraved knife for Christmas 2019 I was quite taken aback when he presented it to me, it really is something quite special to have...I don’t think he fully realises how much I will use it, however I always use a French knife for eating fruit and cheese, now I can use my Opinel. I bought my Dad one years ago...he was a farmer and needed a good knife. Now I have one !

I recieved my Opinel yesterday from my girlfriend on my birthday. An Opinel is something of a legend brand here in Savoie and they say you're not a true Savoyard without one. I absolutely love the knife. Brilliant craftsmanship at some really nice prices. I know that I'll be buying some with Christmas on it's way!
