Opinel Stainless Steel Folding Knife - No.8 Coloured Variants
You can't go wrong with an Opinel, simple design with good steel and great value. A combination that has worked for years and will carry on working for years and years.
Opinel knife blades are made using high quality stainless steel, which is easy to maintain and will last. Opinels are the pocket knife which we have all carried for years and years, tucked away like an old faithful piece of kit that you know you can rely on.
They use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel which is one of the best stainless steels on the market today. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
The blade locks using the Virobloc safety ring, which in addition to locking the blade in the open position for safety of use, now enables locking of the blade in the closed position for safety during carrying.
The handle is made from durable French orange beech wood, and the Opinel Yatagan blade, with its curved point and round profile, is effective, precise, elegant. The handle also now has a lanyard hole that comes with a leather loop or you can choose to attached your own lanyard.
An Opinel locking knife is an ideally sized pocket knife and has a manually operated locking mechanism, perfect for all purposes - a true all rounder.
