This knife is made of Padouk wood. This wood provides to the handle a high resistance to the humidity.
It offers an excellent cutting quality. The safety ring allows the user to work without any risks.
We use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
Le Padouk est un bois africain dense et au grain fin. Sa couleur varie du brun pourpre au rosâtre avec des veines violettes.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
