Our carbon steel is extremely hard, thereby ensuring that the cutting edge is maintained, there is little wear and regrinding is easy.
Opinel blades are all ground to a convex profile – the blade can be ground efficiently and maintains its robustness. To avoid causing harm to the environment (via transport pollution, deforestation etc), 95% of wooden handles come from French logging.
Handle: Tinted varnished beech wood
Blade: 10cm carbon steel
NOTE: carbon is not very corrosion-resistant: we advise you to avoid damp environments and to wipe and oil the blade after use.
