The Opinel Classic Chef's Knife is an all-purpose knife which features a curved blade allowing you to rock the knife on the cutting board for a more precise cut. Since 1890, generations of Opinel craftsmen have been providing a traditional style to bring you authentic quality knives. 95% of the wood handles come from French forestry holdings. The logs are selected for the quality of their wood. The handle is made from timber sections using machines to cut the length, hooping, shaping, bevelling the ends, sawing the slot, and sanding, followed by varnishing. The stainless steel blade with the addition of chrome, makes it highly corrosion-resistant while providing an excellent cutting edge. The blade is cut out from a strip of steel, and heat-treated to alter the internal structure of the steel, making it very hard. This raw blade then passes through a series of specific grinding wheels in grinding-polishing machines. This process gives the unique domed Opinel profile which ensures unrivalled strength and cutting edge.
