Opinel No. 6 Stainless Steel Colorama Folding KnifeOpinel
Since its creation in 1890, Opinel has been manufacturing its knives in the heart of the French Alps. Today their plant in Chambéry (Savoie, France) covers a surface area of almost 60,000 square-feet and employs 110 people, of which 60 work directly in production.
All of their products (traditional pocket-knives with carbon steel and stainless steel blades, specialist pocket-knives, sharp slim pocket-knives, garden tools, elegant table knives, etc.) are entirely manufactured in our factory in Chambéry.
This Knife features the Virobloc Safety rings.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives sizes No6 through No12. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).
The No.06 folding knife is lightweight and just the right size for tossing into your bag or pocket, so you're never without an Opinel! Whether you're opening packages, or having an impromptu picnic in the park, you'll be glad to have this folding knife close at hand.
Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Dry the blade before closing.
