Full description

The Opinel pocket knife with wooden handle. Manufactured in 1890 by Joseph Opinel, this handy knife was originally designed for use by local farmers. The Opinel pocket knife is a renowned, yet really affordable pocket knife, ideal for everyday use. It is available in a variety of sizes ranging from small to fairly large.

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.

This knife cannot be etched since it is manufactured from high-carbon steel. The result does not meet our requirements.

Got this as a first penknife for my 9 year old. It's a small knife - perfect for him at this stage, the handle fits his hand perfectly and it's easy to use and very sharp. He loves it. He has cut himself a few times but hey ho - that's par for the course.

Have always carried a pocket knife and this one though small and unlike most Opinel knives , unlockable, is very sharp and does everything I expected. It’s also legal to keep in your pocket! I wish the company would manufacture the next size up (6) as a non lockable version. This would also be legal to carry, I think.

A traditional and legal pen knife (non locking & below 3”) no fuss, easy to use, fits well in the hand and has a very good edge. Highly recommended!

Can’t beat Opinel knives for value. Something to carry around in your pocket and not worry too much about. (Sounds daft but I end up reluctant to use more expensive / fancier knives!) Very quick delivery at a reasonable price.
