Beech is the most commonly used wood for making Opinel knife handles. The beech wood comes from France, is hard, resistant and easy to work with. It has a homogeneous appearance and the light color varies from yellowish to pinkish. You can recognize the wood by the many dark, small lines. The handle has been varnished to be better protected against moisture and dirt.
The modified Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel was adjusted for Opinel and is known for its sharpness and easy maintenance. The stainless steel has undergone a thermal treatment called martensite, which gives it a very long service life. The carbon content is at least 0.40%, which means that a very satisfactory sharpness is achieved, but at the same time there is no sensitivity to corrosion. Blade hardness 57-59 HRC.
The Virobloc safety ring was invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955. It is present on all folding knives from model N°06. The Virobloc is cut from stainless steel and consists of two parts: a fixed part and a sliding part. In addition to locking the blade in the open position (safe use), it is now also possible to lock the blade in the closed position (safe transport).
This knife does not belong in the dishwasher!
