Opinel Knife No 6
Opinel Carbon Blade No6 Folding Knife
by: Opinel, S.A. – Made in France since 1890
Opinel No6 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.
Opinel knives “Carbon” blade series are made using steels with a high carbon content, which is what makes it possible to achieve the excellent hardness after heat treatment, guaranteeing the good strength of the cutting edge, resistance to wear and easy sharpening.
Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives: we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry and grease the blade after use.
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 and sharpening of carbon steel blades is much easier than sharpening of stainless steel blades.
