Opinel is a simple structure and carefully selected materials
This French brand is clearly associated with classic folding knives. A wooden handle and a blade with a characteristic shape are known to almost all lovers of hiking equipment. Although Opinel knives are based on a very simple scheme, they are perfect for frequent use and guarantee high reliability. The blades are made of carbon or stainless steel and stay sharp for a long time. They can be folded to the handle. An additional element that distinguishes these knives is a ring with which the blade can be locked in folded or unfolded position. This ensures greater safety in using and carrying the knife. The handle is most often made of wood, although more modern models also use synthetic materials. Currently, in addition to traditional folding models, the brand offers many different knives.
