Description: The Opinel knife has long been a feature of everyday French culture. It was invented by Joseph Opinel in about 1895. The company is still run by the Opinel family. Like the original design, this piece is formed from carbon steel and beechwood. This ingenious knife has become well known throughout the world for its elegant, durable simplicity. In fact, the Opinel knife was featured in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London's "Good Design Guide", a collection of the "100 most beautiful products in the world". It is also exhibited by New York's Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) as a masterpiece of design, alongside other industrial objects which ash defied time.
The carbon steel blade takes and holds an exceptional edge. A collar (Virobloc) on the handle is rotated to lock the blade in either open or closed positions. Opinel is a great choice for a youth's first knife. The locking blade makes it a safer knife to use. The No 6 model is a nice small-size folder that will easily fit in most any pocket.
Made in France.
