Opinel Children’s Knife – ‘My First Opinel’ with Sheath

The My First Opinel with Sheath is the perfect knife to teach kids how to whittle, cut, prune or carve wood. The sheath is made from recycled material and will stand the test of time. The knife has a stainless steel blade making it easy to maintain and take care of. The folding knife also features our patented Virobloc locking mechanism which keeps the blade safely closed for transport or securely open while in use. We suggest adult supervision when teaching kids to use the knife.

Blade

8 cm round-tipped secure blade with Virobloc double safety-ring.
Made from Sandvik 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.

Hornbeam handle

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

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).

Sheath

The Sheath is made from Recycled Materials
