OP10: N010 Folding Knife, Carbon Steel
The Opinel N010 is a big folding knife that should not be considered a "pocket" knife. Many people have found that its size makes it a perfect every day steak knife that can be folded and stored in the kitchen drawer. Stabilized beechwood is ultra resistant and comfortably contoured to fit the hand. The blade is made from X90 Carbon steel, with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy of sharpening. The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome. The cutting strength is therefore better with a carbon steel knife and sharpening is much easier than a stainless steel blades which contain chrome. However, carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing a carbon knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry the blade after each use. Of course this knife has many other uses but please consider its size if you are in the market for a "pocket" knife.
  • This knife features the Virobloc Safety ring. The Virobloc safety ring was invented and implemented in 1955. This simple yet effective locking system greatly improved the original knife.The ability to help prevent the blade from opening when closed was added to the Virobloc in 2000.

Opinel knives
The knife is excellent. It is razor sharp out of the box, but can be improved even more with a fine stone and strop. High carbon steel is hard to find, and is rarely as inexpensive as in Opinel products. Handle is the right size, and the lock that keeps the blade open is simple and effective.

for bigger hands
I am very impressed with this knife so it deserves an honest review. I purchased this knife at the end of August and received it before i was expecting so kudos to Knifecenter for prompt service. This is my EDC knife and the only one i carry at the moment to really try it out. First things first, out of the box this knife had to be sharpened but that didnt bother me as thats half the fun. Secondly, this knife doesnt have a secondary bevel and you must know how to sharpen it correctly to get it razor sharp. When i say razor sharp i mean it. This thin carbon steel blade takes a very keen edge and it holds it very well. After a month of EDC and daily use plus some light wood processing for a couple small city park cook fires all it takes to shave with it again is some strop work. Few passes on each side gets her scary again. Yes, i must admit, i have already found out just how sharp she can get. Very clean cut healed in a week. Back to the knife. This knife is great of you need a knife for work in public as it takes time to open it and it has an eye appeal, meaning its not a tactical/scary looking tool. Its simply a knife meant to cut and cut well. I titled this post "for bigger hands" simply because with the knife open it really feels like a bigger knife. I have bigger hands (mens size L-XL) and its just about perfect. The lock ring on mine took some time to get used to but now its second nature. Some reviews say it can be hard to open in humid environments, i am yet to notice this and i live in Ohio. I have more of a problem with the edge sinking into the interior of the handle than anything. If your worried about rusting just coat it with oil every evening and it will last a good long time.
