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.

A classic yet simple design. Mine is used for any general purpose, but it comes into it's own when I'm working in the garden. My wife has her own. My sons have their own. Easy to keep clean. Make sure you have a good sharpener then it will always be well honed. The quality of the steel is outstanding.
