In 1890 Joseph Opinel designed his first pocket knife in Savoie (French Alps), he created a tool that was as robust and functional as it was simple and beautiful. Today, that same pocket knife is an iconic design object : instantly recognizable, imminently useful, and beloved by generations. Designed to stand the test of time, Opinel knives and tools are made with Opinel’s original dedication to craftsmanship and quality.
With its short and pointed blade, which is only sharp at the point, this pocket oyster knife is effective at opening cupped and flat oysters. The Padouk handle is moisture-resistant. Take it to the seaside with you or give it as a Christmas gift.
Martensitic stainless steel with high hardness due to the addition of nitrogen (0.15%) and superior corrosion resistance due to a high chromium content (16%).
Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.
The Padouk is a dense African wood with a thin grain. Its colour varies from purple-brown to pinky with purple veins.
