OPINEL N°09 Traditional Folding Knife S/S – Beechwood

OPINEL N°09 Traditional Folding Knife S/S – Beechwood

Made In France, high in the French Alps, famous and virtually unchanged since 1890. With a classic and unique design, the Opinel is a sought after respected brand throughout the world.

A reliable and robust folding knife, it is a multi-use tool for all handymen and and those who love to picnic.

A useful knife to take to your next picnic, camping adventure or pack into your lunchbox. The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.

Featuring a Beechwood handle which is comfortable in the hand, sourced from France, the Opinel beech is hard and durable its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.

The security system, the Virobloc®, blocks the blade in open position and closed position. 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).

The stainless steel used in OPINEL blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of requiring no special maintenance under ordinary conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. Nevertheless, it can meet its limits when it is put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent etc.)

Blade Length: 9cm

Materials: Stainless Steel (Hardness 55-57 HRC. European origin), Beechwood

ABOUT OPINEL:

Victor-Amédée Opinel who was a peddler, learnt how to forge nails during his travels. He set up his first blacksmith workshop in Gevoudaz, a hamlet part of Albiez-le-Vieux, near Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. His son Daniel later worked alongside his father and grew to became a renowned “edgetool maker”(maker of sharp tools) among farmers who came from afar to buy his billhooks or sickles…

Fast forward to the new millenium and the Opinel pocket knife is recognised as one of the 999 most successful designs of all times by a jury of international designers in the beautiful three-volume set of the “Phaidon Design Classics”
