This Opinel set contains 10 Opinel knives from the Tradition collection. A unique set of Opinel knives for the real collector! You receive the set in a lacquered wooden box. In it you will find the No. 2 up to the No. 10 and the No. 12, neatly presented.
The knives from No. 6 onwards are enhanced with a Virobloc lock, also called the ring lock. In the case of a Virobloc the hinges of the blade are firmly locked by the ring. This type of lockings system is controlled with two hands to make sure your fingers won't get anywhere near the cutting surface. The ring is also used to block the knife when closed. With a drop of oil you can make sure the ring will keep turning smoothly.
Type of steel
The blade is made from Sandvik 12C27 steel. A premium type of steel that retains its sharpness well. With a thin grind which makes it easy to use.
The handle is made from beech wood, a very strong type of wood you often find on Opinel handles. Please note: long-term exposure to the sun can discolour the wood. As such you should always store it away from the sun when you are done using the knives.
Accessories and maintenance
To enjoy your Opinel pocket knife longer maintenance is essential. A drop of Ballistol oil prevents the wood from drying out and losing its colour. Don't forget to lubricate the hinges. This keeps the ring turning smoothly. With the Opinel sharpening stones you can quickly sharpen your knife. Always store it in a matching sheath to make sure you don't damage the metal.
