Sandvik's modified 12C27 stainless steel developed for Opinel is renowned for its sharpness and ease of maintenance. The stainless steel capable of undergoing the heat treatment which gives it its good hardness is called martensitic. It has a carbon content at least equal to 0.40%, which makes it possible to obtain a very satisfactory cutting edge without being sensitive to corrosion.
The handle is injected with fiberglass-reinforced polyamide which guarantees high resistance to shocks, water and extreme temperatures (-40 ° C to + 80 ° C). A whistle is integrated in the heel of the handle, without ball works in all weather, with a power of 110 dB, it has a range of about 300 meters in clear zone.
Invented in 1955 by Marcel Opinel, the safety ring Virobloc is equipped with all the closing knives from N ° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc consists of two parts: a fixed part and a sliding part. In addition to locking the blade in the open position (safe operation), it is now possible to lock the blade in the closed position (transport safety).
