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.

An excellent knife- my intention was to use this as a pocket knife & yes, fine at that but there is something about lockback knives- in the UK anyway- which makes me think twice about just having it in my pocket if I am off to the pub so it's not quite as useful as I'd like. Good sound knife for all that & I do use it.
