In addition to locking the blade open (safety while in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety on the go).

  • Blade - 12C27 Sandvik Stainless Steel
  • Handle - Hornbeam - Coming from French forests, this blonde wood with few veins is ideal for applying color. The handle is varnished for protection against moisture and dirt.
  • Yatagan Style - The classic Opinel blade has adopted a Yatagan shape. The Yatagan shape is inspired by a traditional Turkish saber, the toe up. The blade is ground to an exclusive convex profile that ensures the strength of the blade and allows efficient regrinding.
