The Design of the Opinel Knife

Opinel knife is both smart and simple, composed of 5 elements: the blade, the haft, the fixed ferrule, the rivet and the rotating ferrule that was added in 1955.

  1. Sharp traditional Yatagan blade with a convex profile and a nail nick for opening, stamped with the Crowned Hand.
  2. Fixed ring for robustness
  3. Round wooden handle for a secure and comfortable grip
  4. Rivet to hold the knife together
  5. Rotating Virobloc ring to lock the blade in its open or closed position.

The Safety Ring

Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to every Opinel folding knife from the N°06 upwards. Cut from stainless steel, it locks the blade in open position (safe to use) and in a closed position (safe to carry). More reliable and easier Virobloc was developed in 2016.

Convex Blade

Opinel blades are filed to produce an exclusive convex profile which allows a high resistance to the cutting edge compared to a similar sized blade that's filed flat. Also, the contact between the sides of the blade and the cut material is minimised which reduces friction and makes the cutting easier.

Steel

Opinel uses Swedish 12C27 modified stainless steel Sandvik. 14.5% addition of chrome enhances the resistance to corrosion and doesn't need much maintenance. The carbon content of at least 0.50% gives an excellent cutting edge.

Wood

95% of the handle wood comes from sustainably managed French forests, to minimise the impact on the environment.

Made in France

All pocket knives are manufactured in the Opinel factory in Chambéry, Savoie, in the hear of the French Alps.

Pesant knife
This knife is something so cool. I use it a lot for cooking and cutting stews or fruit. Really handy and simple.

The best part is that it's made in France and costs less than a tenner.

The finish on the blade is not the best, but it passes the paper test.

Pesanttiveitsi
Tämä veitsi on jotain niin makeeta. Käytän tätä paljon ruoanlaitossa ja patongin tai hedelmien leikkaamisessa. Todella näppärä ja yksinkertainen.

Parasta tässä on, että tämä on valmistettu Ranskassa ja maksaa alle kympin.

Terän viimeistely ei ole kyllä parhaasta päästä, mutta läpäisee paperitestin.

Great knife
Quality is excellent. Fits well in the hand and feels comfortable to use. I use the knife for everything I need a handy tool for.

Mahtava veitsi
Laatu on erinomainen. Sopii käteen hyvin ja käyttö tuntuu miellyttävältä. Käytän veistä kaikkeen, mihin näppärää työkalua tarvitaan.

Price/quality on target
Very nice looking knife and takes up very little space in your pocket. It is very sharp out of the box.

Hinta/laatu kohdillaan
Oikein kauniin näköinen veitsi ja vie taskussa vähän tilaa. On jo paketista otettaessa hyvin terävä.

Opinel oak handle
I have bought these knives in France, but I have not found an oak knife there. Excellent knife. I have also bought carbon steel knives as gifts from France. It's great that the online shop works quick and easy.

Opinel tamminen kädensija
Olen ostanut näitä veitsiä Ranskasta, tammista veistä en ole sieltä kuitenkaan löytänyt. Erinomainen veitsi. Olen ostanut lahjaksi myös hiiliteräisiä veitsiä Ranskasta. Hienoa, että nettikauppa toimii vaivattomasti ja nopeasti.
