The Atelier collection reinvents the Opinel marquetry
The result of the creativity and know-how of our cabinetmakers, the handle of the Atelier collection combines walnut and ebony
This novelty is part of Opinel's approach to make maximum use of European wood species and to optimize the consumption of exotic wood by reinterpreting the scraps resulting from the manufacture of handles.
Blade length - 6cm/8.5cm
Sandvik stainless steel - We use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge.
Handle - Walnut handle from French forests with African ebony heel. These two species are separated by a maple layer. To get a velvet touch, a specific wax is applied manually on each handle.
Safety ring - 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).
