Opinel No 10 Slim Stainless Steel Knife Olive Wood w/Sheath 10.16cm (4″ Satin)
The Opinel Slim #10 folder has a INOX stainless steel blade and olive wood handle. This traditional Opinel pocket knife is lightweight and inexpensive while displaying simple sophistication.
The addition of Chrome greatly increases resistance to corrosion caused by moisture. Steels are then called “stainless” and they can be used with fewer restrictions. The Stainless Steel capable of undergoing the heat treatment that gives it its good hardness is called martensitic. Sandvik12c27 Mod: All Opinel Stainless Steel Blades are modified by adding at least 0.40% of Carbon to the “Sandvik” blend , giving it a good cutting edge but which explains why knife blades are not totally corrosion-proof and need a little bit of care.
The knife features a natural varnished Olive Wood Handle and a Safety Ring for locking the Blade in either the open or closed position. The double Virobloc Safety Ring was created by Marcel Opinel in 1955 and locks the blade either in open or closed position.
The knife is accompanied by a rugged, brown Synthetic Leather Belt Sheath with Belt Loop and Metal Attachment Carabiner Clip, Natural Wood Display/Storage Box with Plexiglass Lid.
