The larger models feature the simple yet effective Virobloc safety twistlock mechanism, which allows the blade to be locked in both the open and the closed positions. This pocket knife is a classic in the true sense of the word.
The blade of this knife is made of carbon steel. It is very easy to sharpen and hone to a thin edge, making it razor sharp, yet very strong. Carbon steel is more susceptible to rust than stainless steel and therefore needs to be cleaned properly and kept dry. If you prefer an Opinel knife with a rust-resistant blade, you can use the knives with stainless steel.

I bought my first Opinel Knife 50 years ago in 1968. I still have that knife and it's still as good as it was when new. I decided to invest in a new Opinel 10 and I am not disappointed. The quality of build is still there & the carbon steel blade is just as sharp. Look after your Opinel Knife & it will last you a lifetime !!
