The stainless bladed Opinel locking knives are an ideally sized pocket knife, perfect for all purposes - a true all-rounder!


Opinel name this steel "INOX", which is simply French for "inoxydable" or, stainless. We list our knives by blade length:



  • 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 blade lock's 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.


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

    Not quite right

    Posted by Hullblazer on 18th Jun 2020

    I have owned (and still have a couple of) Opinel before and find them great beaters.

    I have just bought a No.8 and am chuffed I've found the right size for me. It came BAF though, quickly fixed on my Lansky system, and although this is not a deal-breaker, is VERY unusual for this brand.

    Which one ?

    Posted by Mike on 4th Jun 2020

    The Opinel knives need no introduction? They are classics with around fifteen million made as they claim each year !
    I have left a review on the carbone model , but have of late become more into the inox or stainless versions!
    Reason , well they don't rust they don't get a patina either , something knife nuts ,enthusiasts seem to rave on about !
    Some say the carbone ones are much better cutters ? Well I've got about forty years experience with these opinel s and others and I can say that these models are of similar performance!
    The main reason I prefer the inox models is for what I use them for most and that's food prep ? The carbone ones smell when you cut say apples ! They also rust very quickly if damp and seem to get stiffer to open in the winter months ?
    The inox models come in some really lovely woods too ,the oak is very nice as is the olive !
    The main issue I've always had is which one to choose? My first was a carbone no6 ,but I have had 7, 8 ,9 , 12 infact one usually leads to another ?
    I like them all but the ones no 2 through to no 5 don't lock and these are far to sharp to have non locking blades ? As nothing holds the blade open but friction!
    I have heard it said that these opinel float , but that's nothing more than a myth ! Drop yours overboard and you will be online to HH for another?
    On that note HH were again super fast to deliver and a good price for these opinel and there's plenty of choice !
    Five stars alround .....

    That's not a knife ? This is a knife !

    Posted by Lowey on 15th Apr 2020

    Opinel no12 is a bit big for edc ? But around the house this thing is just awesome!

    I have owned the 12 in carbone many years ago and to be honest considered it a novelty item?

    Well this is the inox stainless version and its great ! If like me you like the brand you have just got to get it ?

    This is like a folding bread knife ! It slices ,my word does it slice ! So sharp you can almost shave with it after a mild strop !

    Like every Opinel I have ever had, this never fails to impress me on how such a basic century old design works so well even today ? Knives don't get any better than this for their intended purpose !

    Value for money is what this knife has always been about regardless of model chosen ! With little care this 'one for the masses 'will give years and years of pleasure totally recommend

    HH was a pleasure to deal with again as always!

    Opinel INOX (Stainless Steel) - No.12

    Posted by Gerry on 1st Apr 2017

    I now have three Opinel knives two carbon and one stainless; all three have arrived in superb condition and very fast “ the last one over night.

    I have given each one the hot oil treatment (see on utube) and made the nail slot easier to get at by reshaping the handle.

    I can honestly say I am delighted with the knives and the service given by Heinnie Haynes.

    Good blade for the money.

    Posted by Michael on 27th Oct 2016

    Looking at the combination wooden scales and decent size/quality blade for under £10 !!! You can't go wrong.
    Of course, wood means you have to take care of it. No leaving wet, the scales swell and it will become very difficult to open or close it. Give it a bit of oiling first thing after purchase. Brief sharpening and honing and you can shave you arms, or legs if you're heading for Tour de France :)
    By the way, the blade is thin which is great for slicing and foot preparation.
    Not so good for carving and don't even think about using the point for anything harder than your palm skin when extracting splinters.

    Own plenty, they do not disapoint!

    Posted by Practical Survivor on 9th Sep 2015

    Think of them as hand made, traditional looking mora's.

    Great price, great look, sharp out of the box, good for a variety of tasks and possibly the king of EDC.

    Do they have con's? Yes, but they all fall under the "handmade and more than acceptable" category.

    Need a small, sharp knife that looks good? This is it, dirt cheap too.

    All time classic

    Posted by J on 26th Aug 2015

    If this knife is so well known and so well used all over the world, there are very good reason for it: cheap + good quality + fold but safe. This is my eating + small task knife when camping, I cannot see anything else that will replace it better with the same qualities.

    Blade design.

    Posted by Leight on 19th Aug 2015

    Too start this review by saying the blade geometry is totally different to any other knife I have ever used so to sharpen my carbon steel opinel No8 I Personally use fine wet/dry paper and that dosn't change the shape of the blade but gives it a surgical sharpness edge ???????????

    good

    Posted by robbins on 11th Aug 2015

    good work knife, very sharp out the box, if i was to order again tho i would buy the number 8.5 instead of 7 has it is very light and cant feel it in your pockets so could easily lose it an not notice
