why this product

With an easy-to-maintain stainless steel blade, this knife is ready for wherever your adventures might take you. 

use & care

• Hand-wash after each use.

• Wipe the blade dry.

• Store in a dry place and keep out of damp conditions.

• Expect the wooden blade to swell or contract slightly with use; wood is a living material that can be affected by humidity and atmospheric conditions. If your blade feels stuck, use the “Opinel knock” — rapping the end of the knife on a hard surface — to loosen the blade slightly.

• Grease the metal parts, including the Virobloc locking mechanism, on a regular basis.

• Use a whetstone or other fine-grain natural stone to sharpen your blade. Make sure the blade is dry and clean, and hold the sharpening stone at an approximately 20-degree angle from the blade while sharpening.

production & design

Virobloc safety ring, invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955; the locking ring allows the blade to be locked in both the open and closed positions.
