The Opinel Carbon Steel Folding Knife is ideal for the outdoors, the work shop, around the house, and more. 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. Opinel carbon knife blades are made using steels with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the good strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy sharpening. Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives. The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome.
