Description
OP9: N09 Folding Knife, Carbon Steel
Opinel
 
The Opinel N09 is the first of their "large" knives with a full-size 3.5" blade. 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 is a very large knife - please review its size before considering it.
Safety
  • 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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
I have wanted one since the 80's
Glad I finally pulled the trigger and ordered one. Truly love everything about it, even though I don’t think much of the French. I don’t know how they do it for this money, twice the value.

Been looking to get an opinel for a while. I couldn't decide between the No 8 or No 9, Carbon or Stainless. With the prices on here I was able to get one of each. The No 9 Carbon came shaving sharp. The locking collar was a little too tight but I was able to loosen it up with a pair of pliers.
