OP6: N06 Folding Knife, Carbon Steel
The Opinel N06 is the smallest model that features the Virobloc safety ring. This little knife is non threatening and very durable. It is small enough to be placed in a pocket or purse and will "deliver" when needs be. 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.
  • 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.

Best bang for the buck.
First of all, this is not a $100.00 folding knife. With that said, this is a very good knife. The quality of steel used is evidenced by the fact that it easily sharpens into a razor edge. The Opinel #6 is small and extremely light. You will hardly notice that it is in your pocket. The locking system on the Opinel locks the knife up solidly. I use this knife for everyday cutting chores and do not think you will find another knife with more bang for the buck.
