Stainless Steel Blade
Opinel’s stainless steel blades are made of Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chromium and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% provides an excellent cutting edge.
Virobloc Safety Ring
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)
Fiberglass-reinforced polyamide withstands shocks, humidity, and extreme temperatures(-40°F +176°F). Built into the handle is a pealess survival whistle (functions in all weathers at 110 decibels), a retractable field dressing hook, and a fire starting rod.
Made In France
Since its creation in 1890, the company has been manufacturing its knives in the heart of the French Alps.
