Perfect for grafting, incising and pruning the No.8 Opinel Pruning Knife with its lightly curved 8cm blade is also useful to pick flowers and fruits.
The No.10 Opinel Pruning Knife with it's more billhooked blade is used to cut shrubs or to gather grapes. With its 10cm blade bevelled on both sides, this is the perfect tool for harvesting, pruning shrubs or cutting ties.
The stainless steel used in Opinel blades is a grade optimized to guarantee both high corrosion resistance and high mechanical performance. The blade offers excellent sharpness and high resistance to abrasion (wear) which allows it to withstand regular contact with hard materials, such as ceramics, before requiring re-sharpening.
Invented by Marcel Opinel in 1955, the Virobloc safety ring is fitted to all folding knives from the N° 06. Cut out of stainless steel, the Virobloc has two sections, one fixed and one sliding. In addition to locking the blade open (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the blade closed (safety in transport).
