Sandvik Stainless Steel
Sandvik's modified 12C27 stainless steel developed for Opinel is renowned for its cutting edge and ease of maintenance. Stainless steel capable of undergoing the heat treatment that gives it its good hardness is called martensitic. It has a carbon content of at least 0.40%, which makes it possible to obtain a very satisfactory cutting edge without being sensitive to corrosion.
Boxwood comes from French and European forests. It is a dense and hardwood , of light yellow color, with very fine grain.
Invented in 1955 by Marcel Opinel, the Virobloc safety ring equips all closing knives from N ° 06. Cut in stainless steel, the Virobloc consists of two parts: a fixed part and a sliding part. In addition to blocking the blade in the open position (safety of use), it is now possible to lock the blade in the closed position (transport safety).
