Full description

The Opinel pocket knife with wooden handle. Manufactured in 1890 by Joseph Opinel, this handy knife was originally designed for use by local farmers. The Opinel pocket knife is a renowned, yet really affordable pocket knife, ideal for everyday use. It is available in a variety of sizes ranging from small to fairly large.

The larger models feature the simple yet effective Virobloc safety twistlock mechanism, which allows the blade to be locked in both the open and the closed positions. This pocket knife is a classic in the true sense of the word.

The blade of this knife is made of carbon steel. It is very easy to sharpen and hone to a thin edge, making it razor sharp, yet very strong. Carbon steel is more susceptible to rust than stainless steel and therefore needs to be cleaned properly and kept dry. If you prefer an Opinel knife with a rust-resistant blade, you can use the knives with stainless steel.

I had two criteria in mind when I was looking for a knife: It had to be fairly inexpensive, and it had to look nice on the desk in my home office. You see, since the country went into lockdown a few months ago I've been working from home. Whenever a parcel has been delivered, I've reached for either a stanley knife or my Gerber multitool to open it. Because I'm disorganised, they invariably end up left on the desk once I've used them. Because my wife can't stand mess, they usually get cleared away and put somewhere out of sight. Not necessarily someone I can find them - just somewhere out of sight, doesn't matter where but it usually means that next time I want one I have a bit of a search on my hands before I can use it. Enter the Opinel knife. Nice varnished handle, which goes very nicely with my varnished desktop. My wife doesn't object to me leaving it on the desk. It stays where I left it because it just looks like it should be left sitting on the desk. As a knife, well the blade is nice and sharp. It's quite easy to deploy if a little stiff, and the locking mechanism is pleasingly simple. No bells, no whistles. Just a simple wooden handle with a carbon steel blade. What more could you ask for?

I have given this five stars only because I cannot give it six, It was received honed to a very sharp edge which saved me time sharpening, the steel is thin and not stainless just the job for my wooden craftwork and anything else. these knives are sooooo cheap for the quality of steel received the hardwood handle looks a bit common to the untrained eye, however, in design, I find that the simple things come out first with the super lock. p.s. this is my first review with a tool or pocket knife I use all the time. p.p.s it was a design made for French farmers so they say.
