The Opinel Classic Original - Carbon Steel is the classic Opinel pocket knife. Part of the Opinel Tradition collection. Discover a collection in the purest tradition of the Opinel pocket knife. The timeless folding knife, an essential tool for the DIYer, camper or picnics in the wild.

    • Opinel No.6 - 7.0cm
    • Opinel No.7 - 8.0cm
    • Opinel No.8 - 8.5cm
    • Opinel No.9 - 9.0cm
    • Opinel No.10 - 10cm
    • Opinel No.12 - 12cm

The famous Opinel Beech Carbon steel folding knife is to hand during all your adventures: hiking, camping, bivouacking, hunting and fishing. Extremely versatile, it is the ideal companion for your excursions into Nature.

 

The blades lock using the Virobloc safety ring, which in addition to locking the blade in the open position for safety of use, now enables locking of the blade in the closed position for safety during carrying.

Opinel knife blades 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 handles are made from durable French orange beech wood, and the Opinel Yatagan blades, with their curved points and round profiles, are effective, precise and elegant.

    A classic utility knife

    Posted by Grant on 20th Feb 2021

    After misplacing the one I bought in France, I ordered a 6cm. It's slightly smaller but razor sharp and keeps it's edge. For the money, it's worth every penny

    Hmmm

    Posted by Nick on 27th Jan 2021

    Ok. So with hearing about Opinel knives I thought I would purchase one. I must admit I was expecting better quality. The wooden handle feels really cheap and like any request to perform anything over and above gentle cuts, would result in it falling to pieces. Blade came not overly sharp and had a couple of jagged sections so will need to sharpen those out. Not the greatest knife I’ve ever seen.

    Excellent blade

    Posted by Philip Stephenson on 5th Jan 2021

    Purchased as a work tool but it’s too good for that. The sharp edge on this blade is fantastic. Beautiful safety locking mechanism makes this knife a wonderful life tool. Buy one.

    Smashing little hlade

    Posted by Ian on 23rd Apr 2020

    Bought my first Opinel (No.6) recently. Great service by HH, nuff said! No. 6 is a little knife but comes very sharp OTB. A few swipes on the strop and it was soon razor sharp. With a locking blade it's obviously not UKF, but great for fishing, small garden jobs and round the house tasks. I've seen some pimped versions and for a few quid if you want to try your hand it's no great loss if you screw it up. Might give it a go! Cheers HH

    Goldern oldie

    Posted by Mike on 27th Mar 2020

    Opinal knives are by tradition a French peasants knife ? These were made cheap for the every day pocket of you guessed it the French! I had one of these given to me about fourty years ago for out door activities, I really wanted a swiss army knife! Anyway this opinal grew on me fast it was a no 6 I believe? This was as then carbon steel ,it was razor sharp an amazing knife that soon became a treasured piece of kit for me ! That one wore out so I went straight out and got a no7 then a no9 I found the 9 a little big for edc type use so got the 8 and have had about five of them both carbon and stainless inox I am using no8 carbon now and it takes a lethal edge ,superb performance for anything you throw at it The beauty is they are in expensive, I don't use the word cheap as I have to much respect for this knife ! This knife always reminds me of a small table leg that looks like it was modded? If you are on the fence here , take the plunge the best tenner you will spend on a knife ! Ps these knives come in sizes tiny to massive no8 is about half way but it locks ! I think no5 is the biggest non locking model but you can take the locking ring off all of them ! Service from HH was again ace
