The Opinel knife was designed in 1890 by Joseph Opinel. Its simplicity, robustness and functionality have convinced many generations of users. Passed on from one generation to the next, Opinel is considered a unique and timeless household object. Unchanged for over a century, it’s design is one of the most successful of all times. For this reason, Opinel is recognised by the British Victoria and Albert Museum, as being among the 100 best and most recognisable designs. Produced in the heart of the French Alps, the Opinel pocket knives draw simplicity and durability from their mountain roots. Over time, the Opinel folding knife has been adopted in the entire world and is now recognised as a design icon. A mythical object handed down from generation to generation. It remains essential and popular for DIY, camping or picnics in the countryside.
The ideal tool for opening oysters and shellfish. With its short and pointed blade, which is only sharp at the point, this pocket oyster knife is effective at opening cupped and flat oysters. The Padouk handle is moisture-resistant. Take it to the seaside with you or give it as a Christmas gift.
Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.
Padouk is a dense and fine-grained African wood. Its colour varies from purple-brown to pinkish with purple veins.
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).
