The No.03 is Opinel's second smallest folding knife. Commonly used as a letter opener, or box opener, this knife may be tiny, but features the signature Opinel blade with a varnished beech wood handle. The perfect size to fit in just about any pocket! Due to the size, this knife does not feature the Virobloc® safety ring.
Select either a high carbon steel blade or a stainless steel blade.
Hand wash only. Do not immerse your knife in water, as this could warp the wooden handle. Do not wash the carbon blade by running it under water, simply wipe it down after use. If wet, immediately dry the carbon blade with a soft, dry towel. Lubricating the carbon blade with a food safe oil before closing the knife is recommended (this prevents oxidation). Over time, carbon steel can develop a patina and may possibly show some corrosion, depending on use.
