Small, smart and safe
The N°06 is the smallest Opinel with Virobloc® double safety ring. Ideal for outdoor activities and sports, N°06 is also practical and efficient for daily manual work (small crafts and sewing). Its size is particularly suited to the most minor hands.
- 7 cm
Sandvik stainless steel
- 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
- The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
- The handle is made from olive wood. A stunning type of brown wood with beautiful dark brown lines. The wood looks stylish and chic.
- 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).
