This Opinel Ebony No. 10 pocket knife from the Slim Line series has a length of 22.5 cm and a weight of 47 grams. Its narrow blade makes it ideal for tasks like filleting fish and cutting fine, thin slices. Opinel Slim Line knives come in various luxurious wooden handles and are very affordable. They're also great all-rounders that you can carry with you at all times! Are you looking for an affordable, everyday pocket knife made with beautiful materials? Then this is the pocket knife for you!
The knife has a Virobloc lock, also known as a ring lock. With a Virobloc, the hinges of the blade are firmly blocked by the ring. This type of locking system requires two hands, which means your fingers are less likely to come near the cutting edge. The ring is often also used to lock the knife when closed. Occasionally add a drop of oil to make sure the ring will keep turning smoothly.
The blade is made from stainless Sandvik 12C27 steel, which is extremely durable thanks to the addition of chrome. A small amount of carbon has also been added to the steel. These knives really are razor-sharp. The blade is polished to a high gloss, resulting in a beautiful mirror effect. This gives the knife a very stylish look.
The handle is made of ebony, a rare black wood from the forests of Africa. You often see ebony used in sculptures and musical instruments. The deep black colour really contrasts beautifully with the high-gloss polished blade. A special wax has been applied to the handle, making it feel velvety soft.
Accessories and maintenance
To keep enjoying your Opinel pocket knife for a long time, maintenance is essential. A drop of Ballistol oil prevents the wood from drying out and ensures that it won't lose its colour. Don't forget to oil the hinges as well. This keeps the ring running smoothly. You can make the blade razor-sharp again with Opinel's sharpening stones. Always store your knife properly in a matching sheath to prevent damage to the metal. Check out our combo deals and complete your set!
