The stainless steel used in making Opinel blades is optimized to ensure high resistance to corrosion and high mechanical performance. The blade offers excellent sharpening and high resistance to abrasion (wear), allowing it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before needing re-sharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of not requiring special maintenance under normal conditions of use, unlike carbon steel. However, it can reach its limits when in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, saltwater, detergent…).
Beechwood is the most commonly used wood for making Opinel handles. Sourced from France, the beechwood used is hard, easy to work with, and durable. With a uniform appearance, its light color varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous fine dark lines.
