This Opinel 12-piece assortment includes twelve 3.5" to 4.5" closed folding knives with carbon steel blades and and oak wood handles. Each knife has safety ring for locking the blade. 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. Made in France.
  • 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.

Excellent farm knife
The first Opinel knife I ordered was a No. 9. I was so impressed with the simplistic design, light weight wood handle, and excellent honing characteristics that I decided to give one as a gift to my father. He was also very impressed with the knife and since he made a living as a butcher for a while I was sure that I was on to something good. After buying a couple piecewise I decided to get one of these "card sets" and I have not been disappointed. The carbon steel is very easy to sharpen with a few laps on the stone and they fit in with the Old Hickory carbon steel knives I keep in my kitchen. I have given away some from the set as gifts and held on to six to keep as steak knives for myself. They have oxidized a little but I like the look and that can be prevented by keeping them oiled or buying the stainless versions. They are very nice pocket knives given their weight and the locking mechanism is fail proof. Since they are not full tang they should be used accordingly. It should be noted that the handle will swell if soaked in water making it difficult to open. I hand wash and rack dry because I have no dish washer.
