Opinel Stainless Steel Knife, with Virobloc Closure
Designed in 1890, the Opinel folding knife is a tried and tested design, popular across the world. The recognisable shape plus the simple but practical design make it an enduring staple among those in need of a reliable tool.
These blades are made from a high-quality Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel - producing a tarnish-resistant blade that holds a good cutting edge.
The beech wood used to craft the handle naturally varies from a light caramel colour to a faint yellow hue and is characterised by numerous small, dark 'dashes' within the grain.
Its unique Virobloc safety ring can lock the knife in either the closed or open position, for safety in transportation and in use.
An Opinel folding knife is the perfect marriage of form and function - the design is both useful and iconic, and the knife is a dependable workhorse. With proper maintenance, an Opinel will provide many years' service, at an affordable price.
