Carbon steel is the steel historically used by Opinel, which has contributed to the brand's global fame. The carbon steel blade is marked by its exceptional cutting quality and ease of sharpening. The knives are ideal for DIY, gardening, sculpture, wickerwork etc. The blade requires specific maintenance to avoid the risk of corrosion.
The knives feature a beechwood handle for comfortable handling. A Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the #06 up, which allows users to lock the blade when open (safety in use) and closed (safety in transport).
