Opinel No. 12 Stainless Steel Knife is the larger brother of the more common sizes, it features a 4.75 inch blade, that gives you the extra cutting edge for bigger tasks you may face. It is a great knife to carry around, relatively inexpensive, yet it offers a reasonable quality edge.
Stainless Steel is great for those who cannot tolerate rust. For example, it is great for food or rust prone environments, like the sea.
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
