XC90 carbon steel
The Opinel carbon steel is a non-alloy steel with a high amount of carbon that allows to obtain after the operation a heat treatment with an excellent hardness that guarantees a precise cut and a high resistance to wear and easy sharpening. However, the carbon steel with a weak resistance to corrosion by moisture, requires certain precautions for use: do not wash your knife in a wet environment, especially dishwasher, dry the blade with a greasy cloth after use and grease it often, as well as its joint.
Handle: Beech is the wood most used for the manufacture of Opinel handles. It comes from French farms, it is hard, resistant and easy to work. With a homogeneous aspect, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is easily recognizable by the presence of several dark traces. The varnished handle is protected from stains and humidity.
Invented by Marcel Opinel, the Virobloc safety ring is on all knives that close from No. 06. Cut in stainless steel, the Virobloc consists of two parts: a fixed part and a sliding part. In addition to locking the blade in the open position (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade in the closed position (safe transport).
