  • 12C27M Sandvik stainless steel. Sandviks 12C27 stainless steel developed by Opinel is famous for its cutting and ease of use. The stainless steel is capable of undergoing the heat treatment that gives it its great durability and is called martensitic. It has a large amount of carbon, at least 0.40%, which allows to achieve a very satisfactory cut without being sensitive to corrosion. Blade hardness 57-58 HRC
  • Type of blade: The traditional Opinel blade is the so-called Yatagan blade. Its shape is inspired by a Turkish saber, with a raised tip. The blade is furnished according to an exclusive pumped profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows effective sharpening.
  • Handle: natural beech wood. Beech is the wood most commonly 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.
  • Safety ring: Viroloc. 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 transportation).
