OP01144: N08 Slim Olive Folding Knife, Stainless Steel
The Slim series (a.k.a Effilés in French) are elegant and highly ergonomic. The N08 and N010 can be used as pocket knives. The N012 makes a great table knife while the N015 can be used to fillet on the go. All slim knives have a narrow flexible blade, the smallest ones are great to cut fruits and vegetable and the larger ones fillet fish. Please keep in mind that the Slim knives have a slightly flexible blade and are not designed to be used for heavy duty tasks. The handles are made of olive wood and may expand and contract with extreme humidity (or lack of) and will temporarily affect the mechanism. The blade is made from 12C27 Sandvik Stainless steel, which will not rust, however try to avoid leaving your Opinel knife in damp environments for too long and 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.
