Opinel products come with a lifetime warranty and are exchanged in case of defects in materials and workmanship.
Damages due to normal wear and tear, improper use, dismantling or other alteration, are not covered by the warranty.
Opinel uses two types of steels for their blades, i.e. carbon* and stainless** steel and corrosion to these blades is not covered by warranty:
* Carbon steel is the steel historically used by Opinel, which has contributed to the brand’s global fame. The carbon steel blade is marked out by its exceptional cutting quality and ease of sharpening. The blade requires specific maintenance to avoid the risk of corrosion which is not covered under warranty.
**Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant, does not require any particular maintenance and ensures excellent cutting quality.
