  • Description
  • The Opinel No.06 Traditional Carbon Steel Folding Knife is an iconic outdoor adventure tool with an 2.87 inch blade that locks securely into place, and folds neatly into the handle between tasks. It's the perfect size for throwing in your pack or your pocket so it's at your side all day.

    This knife is perfect for everything from setting up camp to cooking by the fire, and is equally at home with DIY projects as out in the woods.

    The blade of the No.06 is crafted from XC90 carbon steel, which holds an edge exceptionally well and is very easy to sharpen. Carbon steel does require special treatment and oiling after use to avoid corrosion. Even with maintenance, a carbon steel blade will develop a dark patina over time.

    The grind of the No.06's blade is convex, which minimizes contact between the sides of the blade and the material being cut, prolonging the sharp edge's life. This grind also makes the blade extremely strong and allows Opinel to put a remarkably sharp edge on it.

    Crafted in the French Alps, this folding pocket knife features a tinted and varnished beechwood handle made from wood sourced from sustainably managed forests in France. It is contoured for a comfortable grip.

    The blade locks open for use or closed between jobs with Opinel's patented Virobloc safety ring, which is a stainless steel ring that rotates into position and keeps the blade securely in place.

    Caring for your Opinel Knife:
    Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Dry the blade before closing, as carbon steel has very low resistance to corrosion. Wipe the blade clean after use and oil it frequently.
