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 have been using Opinal knives for over 50 years, the simplicity of their design eliminates springs etc and the ability to lock the blade is a great advantage, Personally i prefer the Carbon steel blades to the stainless steel as i find that a much sharper edge can easily be produced . I use my knife daily for a whole array of reasons, work, Home or leisure times it always comes in handy. I have never had a blade break and only have to renew if i lose it, now at the price they are i buy two ,terrific value for money and i whole heartedly recommend them to anyone that require a good useful pocket knife.

First time buying a knife online, age verification was straight forward. Quick service and speedy delivery. Blade seems quality metal and is very sharp. Handle is light weight doesn’t have that ‘feel’ of a quality wood and would have preferred a locking mechanism. To me the knife seems made for cutting apples, cured sausage etc. Nice pocket knife.
