A professional-quality corkscrew with 5 spires made of hardened stainless steel.


Opinel use Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. With a carbon content of at least 0.40% it gives excellent cutting edge.


The Beech handle is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, Opinel beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light colour varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.


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).

    Corkscrew in an Opinel what a winner !

    Posted by Mike on 15th Apr 2020

    Opinel no 10 is about the only model i until now have never owned!

    The model was never around in shops when I seemed to be looking out for yet another Opinel knife ? I have found these knives rather addictive over four decades , and I have yet to find any knife that slices like them ? They also are one of the easiest knives to sharpen !

    Opinel no10 is finally in the hand and with a built in corkscrew to boot !

    The blade is big and as sturdy as ever , fairly sharp and inox , ie inoxable or even stainless sanvic steel ?

    The corkscrew is well crafted into the handle and is very robust ,it's a lot bigger than a swiss army knife version but then so is the Opinel no10 !

    To some up , the knife is just classic Opinel and I'm pleased to finally get no10 to ad to the rest of them ,although I think she will live in the kitchen in place of a no8 ?

    Service from HH was as always perfect ,even in this troubled time we have at present ! Five stars alround.....

    Top feasting and quaffing knife

    Posted by Alex Jacob/Cobra Whips on 11th Dec 2015

    A lot of the American and British knife reviews I've read over the years have involved things like batoning timber, punching holes in car tyres, letting oneself out of vehicles via improvised exits, etc. - tasks I've never had to undertake in 42 years of knife ownership and I have an axe anyway. The French reviews always come down to la cuisine, whether at home or out and about. I've eaten three times a day, on average, for as long as I can remember, often away from home or gastro pub.

    There's the role, then - camping/picnic knife, continental rail companion, hotel room midnight munchie facilitator, etc. and, of course, be up to any whip fettling usually attendant on such jaunts, although that's what the Douk-Douk (reviewed) is for. My previous attempt was a Claude Dozorme (also reviewed) but that didn't cut it, as 't were.

    The Opinel does, and by a margin. That big blade is perfect for preparing food in the kitchen and devouring it when elsewhere, since the belly is a good shape for buttering bread, the thin profile goes through hard veg without splitting it and the lack of metal to metal friction keeps the blade clean. I gave the insides and front of the handle a good going over with olive oil to shed water so cleaning the knife is quick and easy. Although the edge wasn't brilliant it became so with little effort.

    Yes! An Opinel with a corkscrew! Also good for undoing knots in whip crackers & falls. Damn, no bottle opener - but wait - the corner of the closed blades lifts the caps off ale just fine.

    Closed it's a bit over 5 inches long and chunky but weighs only 78g and is the right size and shape for my hand. Except that the corkscrew would dig in a bit during prolonged or rough tasks. Looks like I'll have to get another of these in carbon steel cos I just love it.
