This Opinel Intempora peeling knife no. 225 8 cm is a kitchen knife that, because of the shape of the handle, might remind you of the famous Opinel pocket knives. It is a decent knife you can work efficiently with. The stylish plastic handle makes the knife look very elegant.
Navy-blue POM handle
The stylish handle is navy-coloured and made from polyoxymethylene or, in short, POM. This is a strong type of plastic that is enhanced with glass-fibres. This makes the knives shock and heat resistant.
Solid Sandvik 12C27-steel
After the succes of the Parallèle collection Opinel also used Swedish Sandvik 12C27 steel for the Intempora collection. This steel, with a high carbon content, can be sharpened easily and won't rust. Swedish decency with French flexibility: an excellent combination!

Nice and sharp and comfortable to handle comparing well to other similar knives that I own. A shame that Opinel decided to have this particular knife made in Portugal instead of their own country of France where all my other Opinel knives were made. Unlike most of those at least these are dishwasher safe.
