The French Opinel No. 6 is very durable and small enough to be placed in a pocket or purse. Perfect for picnics, harvesting grapes, and other neat stuff.

Opinel carbon knife blades are made using steels with a high carbon content (XC90), which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy of sharpening. The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome. The cutting strength is therefore better with a carbon steel knife and sharpening is much easier than a stainless steel blades which contain chrome. However, carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing a carbon knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry the blade after each use.

Avoid leaving your carbon blade knife in damp environments for too long. Place a little food grade mineral oil on all metal parts regularly. Dry the blade using a dry cloth after each use.

This knife features the Virobloc Safety ring on the beechwood handle. Turn the ring to lock the blade in the open and closed positions.

2-7/8" long blade, 6.5" long overall.
