Since 1890, in a pocket, backpack, kitchen drawer or on the table, Opinel has been synonymous with a nomadic art of living, natural spirit, moments of sharing and complicity.
The original Opinel steel, the famous high quality cutting edge, easy to sharpen. The carbon steel blade holds an excellent edge, but must me carefully maintained.
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).
Ideal for outdoor activities and sports, the N°06 is also practical and efficient for daily manual work (small crafts and sewing). Its size is particularly suited to smaller hands.
