Virobloc Safety Ring
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No.06 through No.12. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).
To prevent a negative impact on the environment, Opinel:
Sources 95% of its wood from sustainably managed European forests.
Heats the French factory with discarded wood shavings.
Upcycles waste materials throughout the manufacturing processes.
Hand-wash or wipe clean your blade after each use, then wipe dry. in a dry place and grease the metal parts, including the Virobloc locking mechanism, on a regular basis.
If your blade feels stuck, use the Opinel knock – rapping the end of the knife on a hard surface – to loosen the blade slightly.
Made in France
In 1890, Joseph Opinel invented a small folding knife in the French Alps that would become a design icon throughout the world.
Opinel is about the simple life, being close to nature, and passing this on from one generation to the next.
