Opinel – Simplicity at its finest - A Favourite for Generations!

About Opinel:

The Opinel Knife, crafted high in the French Alps, famous and virtually unchanged since 1890. With a classic and unique design, these French Country Knives all have a natural Wood Handle.

The Opinel Knife - traditional, convenient and multi-purpose Farmer’s Knife.

Product Description:

The famous Opinel No 12 Folding Knife is extremely versatile and is the ideal companion for your excursions into Nature - hiking, camping, bivouacking, hunting and fishing. Quite possibly the greatest camping knife on the market for the last 120 years! The Opinel No 12 is incredibly durable and weighs less than 4 oz. The wood handle does not transfer heat or cold to the hand.

The Opinel No. 12 Carbon Knife comes with an 12 cm Blade manufactured from European X90 Carbon Steel and carries Opinel’s crowned hand hallmark Etching.

Opinel knives "Carbon" Blade Series are made using X90 Carbon Steels with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the good strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy sharpening.

Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry and grease the blade after use.

The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome. The cutting strength is therefore better with a “Carbon” Steel and sharpening of carbon steel blades is much easier than sharpening of Stainless Steel Blades.

 

The knife features a natural Beech Wood Handle and a Safety Ring for locking the Blade. The double Virobloc Safety Ring was created by Marcel Opinel in 1955 and locks the Blade either in open or closed position.

 
Note: This is a big knife; please review its size before considering owning it.
