Product description

N°12 pocket knife, blade made from stainless steel, handle made from beech wood, produced by Opinel.

Designed for cutting hard food, the N°12 knife is the perfect size for use in agriculture and hunting. Used at the dinner table, it becomes an original and efficient serving knife for slicing alpine cheese.

Martensitic stainless steel
The stainless steel used to manufacture OPINEL knife blades is optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance.
The knife blade offers excellent sharpness and high abrasion (wear) resistance, allowing it to withstand the usual contact with hard materials such as ceramics before requiring resharpening. Stainless steel has the advantage of not requiring special maintenance under normal use, unlike carbon steel. However, it can reach its limits when put in prolonged contact with an aggressive environment (acid, salt water, detergent...).

Stainless steel hardness: 55-57 HRC.

Yatagan blade
The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish sword, with the tip pointing slightly upwards. The blade is polished to an exclusive convex profile, which ensures blade strength and allows for efficient resharpening.

The handle
Beech wood is the most commonly used wood for Opinel handles. Originating from France, the beech wood used is hard, easy to work and durable. With a homogeneous appearance, its light colour ranges from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of many fine dark lines.

Safety ring
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted on all foldable knives from the N°06 model
onwards. Cut from stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade in the open position (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade when it is closed (safety during transport).

Blade length: 12 cm
