The Opinel Intempora Paring Knife is designed for slicing, peeling, skinning fruit and vegetables and trimming meat. Since 1890, generations of Opinel craftsmen have been providing a traditional style to bring you authentic quality knives. Opinel Intempora features a polymer handle that's resistant to water, temperature, shocks and wear. The full tang, stainless steel blade 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.
